The KYD Unpublished Manuscript Award (KYDUMA) seeks to support writers of adult narrative fiction and non-fiction in the development of their unpublished manuscripts.
All shortlisted entrants receive a week-long KYD/Varuna Copyright Agency Fellowship, at Varuna, the Writers’ House, in the Blue Mountains. The winner, announced after the fellowship, will also receive a $4000 cash prize.
Entries for the 2020 KYDUMA open on 2 March and close 30 April.
Please note that Submittable is a separate platform to the KYD website, so you’ll need to create a new account there and cannot use your KYD login details.
The judges for the 2020 award are KYD publishing director Rebecca Starford, Picador publisher Mathilda Imlah and KYDUMA 2019 winner Sam van Zweden.
