The Legacy Competition Question and Orion Competition for New Writers

Leading publisher Orion, publisher of bestselling authors such as Ian Rankin and Terry Pratchett, and Arts Council funded new writers’ site launch this competition for budding fiction authors with a critique from a senior editor from Orion for the winner's opening chapters as the main prize. The competition is to celebrate our 2010 book awards this year and the publication of The Legacy by Katherine Webb, last year's YouWriteOn's Book of the Year Award Winner in 2009. Orion discovered The Legacy on, and the story has already become a top seller in bookstores this summer after being chosen as one of the eight books for Channel Four’s TV Book Club Summer Reads this year. Read the first 6 pages from The Legacy on the link below and answer the question below to enter the competition. The winner, who will be chosen at random from the correct entrants, receives a critique for their opening chapters from a senior Orion editor and 10 runners-up will each receive a copy of The Legacy. Closing date for entries is 16th August 2010.
