The KYD Unpublished Manuscript Award (KYDUMA) seeks to support writers of adult narrative fiction and non-fiction in the development of their unpublished manuscripts.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.
The judges for the 2020 award were KYD publishing director Rebecca Starford, Picador publisher Mathilda Imlah and KYDUMA 2019 winner Sam van Zweden.
