Last year's relaunched Sunday Times/Peters Fraser and Dunlop Young Writer of the Year Award was a spectacularly successful affair - wonderful judges (Sunday Times chief fiction reviewer Peter Kemp and Sarah Waters), great events and coverage (including on BBC Radio 4's Today programme), a superb shortlist, and a winner in Sarah Howe who felt like everything that the prize stands for in terms of literary merit and promise.

This year we are hoping for even more, and have begun immensely well with the appointment of two outstanding judges, James Naughtie and Stella Tillyard.

Jim and Stella couldn't be more apt as readers for the award. Jim, of course, as well as being a former stalwart of Radio 4's Today programme, is a passionate advocate for books - he writes them (his second novel, Paris Spring, came out earlier this year), discusses them on the radio (he presents Radio 4's Bookclub), and is now BBC News' Books Editor.

Stella, too, has an extraordinary amount of books knowledge, having written the bestselling Aristocrats, two other highly acclaimed biographies, and the novel Tides of War.

We have already begun reading, and will be drawing up our shortlist for this year's award in early November, with the winner announced in early December. You can be the first to find out more by telling us where to get in touch.

Watch this space for announcements about future plans for the prize. With the tireless help of Peters Fraser and Dunlop we've made a tremendous start, but there's a lot more to come for this year.

At the bottom of that iceberg of 'dark arts' - hacking, burglary, bugging, and bribing bent cops - is the body of Daniel Morgan. It’s been described by an Assistant Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police as “one of the most disgraceful episodes in the entire history of the Metropolitan Police Service.” Over the three decades since Daniel was killed, five failed police investigations and an ongoing panel inquiry, his has become the most investigated murder in British history. The story moves from back streets of London, through the highest echelons of Scotland Yard, to the offices of Rupert Murdoch's best selling newspapers, to the doors of Number Ten Downing Street.

If you haven't heard this story, ask yourself, why?

  1. Make sure that you know why it is that you do want to break into publication.  And not to ask yourself this until after you have finished your book.  Publication does not turn you, as if by magic, into a writer.  You are already a writer.  It's important not to forget that.
  1. Finish your book.  This is the main piece of advice any author will give you.  Whatever is your writing process, ensure that you have got to the very end of it - and are satisfied that you have honed each single word - before you begin to think about the whole other process of publication.
  1. An agent who is prepared to represent you does not necessarily equate to the right agent.  Even if only one shows any interest, the relationship has to be right for you, so make sure that you speak and meet with them until you are sure.  And if you have an instinct that you do not fully trust their ability or desire to wholeheartedly invest their time and expertise in you and your book, then go back to point 1) and ask yourself again what it is that you are wanting to gain from publication.
  Ross Raisin was born in 1979, in Silsden, West Yorkshire. His second novel, Waterline, was published in July 2011 (Viking, Penguin).  His first novel, God's Own Country, came out in the UK in 2008.  The book won The Sunday Times Young Writer of the Year award in 2009, the Guildford First Novel prize, a Betty Trask Award, and was shortlisted for six others, including the Guardian First Book Award and the IMPAC Dublin literary award.  In 2013 he was named as one of Granta’s Best of Young British Novelists.  A new novel, as yet untitled, is due for publication in 2017. He has written short stories for Prospect, Granta, Esquire, Dazed and Confused, the Sunday Times, and BBC Radio Three and Four, and done journalistic feature work, mainly for the Guardian.               [post_title] => Tips for Young Writers - Ross Raisin [post_excerpt] => Make sure that you know why it is that you do want to break into publication.

Hay Festival is fast approaching and we are delighted that once again so many fantastic PFD authors will be making an appearance.

"For 29 years Hay Festival has brought together writers from around the world to debate and share stories at its festival in the staggering beauty of the Welsh Borders. Hay celebrates great writing from poets and scientists, lyricists and comedians, novelists and environmentalists, and the power of great ideas to transform our way of thinking... the exchange of views and meeting of minds that the festival creates inspire revelations personal, political and educational. Hay is, in Bill Clinton's phrase, 'The Woodstock of the mind'.

Hay Festival was founded around a kitchen table in 1987 and continues to attract the most exciting writers, filmmakers, comedians, politicians and musicians to inspire, delight and entertain.

For 10 days in May, Hay is full of stories, ideas, laughter and music."
