An interesting new initiative for unpublished authors, YouWriteOn is a website backed by the Arts Council.
The aim of is to help new writers develop and to help talented writers get noticed and published. We are funded by Arts Council, England - the UK’s largest grant giving body for the arts.

The premise is simple: you review and rate another members opening chapters and then your chapters are randomly sent to another member to review and rate in turn. Each month, the three highest rated new writers enter our Best Seller Chart and receive a free critique from one of our literary professionals, who include established authors and a literary agent.

The completed book of the highest rated opening chapters of the year will be awarded our Book of The Year Publishing Award – the author’s book will be published by YouWriteOn, available to order as a paperback through booksellers such as Amazon, W.H.Smith, Barnes and Noble, Borders, Waterstones and most US and UK bookstores. The winner earns royalties, and sales made through booksellers such as Amazon will feature on Amazon’s own book charts.
