Oxford, United Kingdom (PressExposure) December 18, 2009 -- A publishing expert, who works with millionaires and bestselling authors, is launching a competition to find new writing talent.
The winner of the 'One Page Synopsis Competition' will receive a year's mentoring worth Â£1800, as well as a Â£500 cash.
Stephanie J Hale is former Assistant Director of the world-famous Creative Writing Diploma at Oxford University and founder of Oxford Literary Consultancy. She's also co-founder of The Millionaire Bootcamp for Women and author of 'Millionaire Women, Millionaire You.'
She's worked hundreds of fiction and non-fiction authors... helping rejected writers get their books noticed by literary agents often in less than 7 days.
"With publishing as tough as it is right now, I'd like to give a writer a helping hand through the minefield," she said. "I'm looking for someone very special - highly motivated with a 'can do' mindset - to work with. My aim is to get them thinking and acting like a professional, so that I can help them get a literary agent and a book deal to be proud of."
You may have a book already finished, a manuscript that needs redrafting or an idea that's just been niggling at you for years.
