Leila Rasheed is running a series of interviews with the shortlisted Megaphone authors.
Megaphone is a new writer development scheme, specifically aimed at BAME (Black, Asian or other Minority Ethnic) writers who would like sustained support as they write their first novel for children or teenagers. It is funded by Arts Council England and The PA Children’s Book Group in association with EQUIP (Equality in Publishing). Melissa Cox has made an additional donation to cover one participant’s fees. For further details please have a look at the FAQs page and the Who’s Involved page.
