We are reaching the end of August and it has been an exciting month.   Legend Press are reading the hundreds of entries that have been received from many parts of the world.   It is thrilling to know many more people from different countries have heard about Luke’s Bursary and have felt inspired to send their novels for inclusion in this year’s competition.   It seems that we will have a challenging time ahead deciding on our finalists.


The judging panel will be meeting in October, when the reading is completed, to share some vigorous debate and decide on this year’s winner.   It will be our 9th Luke Bitmead Award Night and we feel sure we will have another wonderfully dynamic evening with past winners and our amazing supporters joining us to celebrate discovering another fledgling writer.

Thank you very much to all the people who have sent in submissions.
