**WIN** a Traditional Contract in our Novel Writing Competition - T&C's

**WIN** a Traditional Contract in our Novel Writing Competition - T&C's

We love that we're able to bring some incredible books to the shelves, from some incredible authors, but what we love most about our company is our open submissions policy, which allows authors with and without agents to submit to us. It is because of that, that we are deciding to run a competition.

If you're an author and are on the look out for a publisher, then you have the chance to win a traditional contract with Austin Macauley. It is, of course, free to enter.

Please make sure to read the Terms and Conditions carefully, as any entries that fall outside the guidelines will not be counted.
