Bham Lit Fest Women’s Prize Trust Discoveries

Birmingham Repertory Theatre,  6 Centenary Sq, Birmingham, B1 2EP


Writing West Midlands – which runs Birmingham Literature Festival – is proud to partner with the Women’s Prize Discoveries programme for 2023.

Discoveries invites unpublished women writers from the UK or Ireland to submit the opening of a novel in English, of up to 10,000 words. Unlike most initiatives of this kind, writers are not required to have finished their novel, and Discoveries is completely free to enter.

At this friendly, informal information session, hear from Women’s Prize founder Kate Mosse, writers Anita Sethi and Irenosen Okojie, and Curtis Brown literary agent Jess Molloy as they share their insight and experience from the world of publishing, and explain how you, too, could make your voice heard and be part of the Discoveries programme.

Tickets include refreshments of tea, coffee or juice on arrival.


This event is part of Birmingham Literature Festival 2022.
