"The Bridport Prize is a great way to test out a first novel. The graduated judging process, which involves real readers and industry experts, provides exposure of an ideal kind.

To know that you have come through from a pool of over 800 is hugely encouraging in the long, lonely struggle (even if you suspect that better writers may not have been so lucky).

"I am so grateful to the organisers - and still wonder just how they managed with such efficiency so many submissions - a brilliant idea brilliantly executed."
