The Bath Novel Award and The Bath Children’s Novel Award are two annual £2,500 prizes open to unpublished and self-published novelists worldwide.
In this revealing interview, we sit down with Awards founder, Caroline Ambrose, and 2016 winner, Kim Sherwood, to find out how the awards began in 2013. We ask what the selection process is for the awards and get tips on what it is about a competition entry that makes it a winner.
With such high stakes, the Bath Novel Awards are highly-contested, and even longlisted authors go on to do great things. We catch up with a 2016 winner, Kim Sherwood, to find out more about the release of her debut novel and how winning The Bath helped her get there.
