"This has been a seismic boost to my self-confidence as a writer. I am very conscious of the high reputation of the Peggy Chapman-Andrews Award and to be selected as the runner-up from such a large pool of ardent first novelists, was as surprising as it was affirming.

My challenging manuscript assessment from The Literary Consultancy has given me just the direction I need to hone and improve "Orphaned Leaves" for submission to agents in 2017. This was a such an amazingly useful prize to receive. It's given me so much to build upon.

I particularly appreciated the one-to-one advice I received from the judges of the competition after the presentations. One of the long standing traditions of the Bridport organisers is the calibre and high profile of the judges they select, yet without exception they were all so approachable and down to earth.

"When I am asked what is my enduring feeling towards the Bridport experience, the answer is simple: it is gratitude".


Christopher Holt (UK) Runner-up, Peggy Chapman-Andrews Award for a First Novel 2016
