The Novella Award 2016

The Novella Award 2016 is an international literary prize co-produced by Manchester Metropolitan University’s Cheshire campus, Liverpool John Moore’s University and Sandstone Press. Our judge, Lucy English, will award £1000 and publication with Sandstone Press to one submission of 20,000-40,000 words.

We’re rolling out an exclusive stream of activity alongside the awards including live performances, experimental writing festivals, community and schools workshops and digital content written by our students at Manchester Met.

We’re seeking sponsorship to enable our programme to be of the finest quality, which will create a large, sustainable impact and encourage community values and collaboration between the university, our community and businesses in our area. The activity has been reaching international collaborators also.

As a sponsor you will gain key visibility in all aspects of the programme including press, event promotion, online content, marketing and will be seen to be supporting the arts, community spirit and quality education.

Our prestigious event will take place end of November in the Axis Arts Centre on Manchester Met’s Cheshire campus and will comprise of an awards giving, installations, exhibitions, performances and a host of flavourful, contemporary writing.

If you would like to discuss sponsoring this programme and event please contact for more information.
