We are delighted to offer 20 free submission places to Novel Fair 2023 for writers from underrepresented backgrounds. The usual fee will be waived for these selected writers.

We encourage writers from backgrounds typically underrepresented in Irish literature to apply. We particularly invite applications from Black, POC, Traveller, Roma, LGBTQIA+, disabled and working-class writers. We will place a strong focus on ethnicity, race, gender identity, sexuality and socioeconomic status when evaluating the applications for this opportunity.

How to Apply

To apply for one of these places please fill out this short form by Wednesday 21 September at 5pm. We will then contact you by Wednesday 28 September to confirm whether you have been awarded a free entry to Novel Fair 2023.
