 About the Book 

Pulp Idol - Firsts 2012 is the third collection of first chapters from new and up and coming novelists who were finalists in the Pulp Idol writing competition organised by the Liverpool-based Writing on the Wall Festival. The competition takes place each year during the festival (usually held in May) and features writers taking part in a series of heats and a final, reading from their work and answering questions from the judges, who are all published writers themselves. The purpose of the competition, and the Firsts publication, is to support new writers and bring their work to the attention of publishers and agents. The judges for the Pulp Idol 2012 final said of this years collections of Firsts:This years Pulp Idol yielded some of the most powerful and original prose Ive read in a long time. A truly notable collection of Firsts. - Helen Walsh, Brass, Go to Sleep, Once Upon a Time in EnglandThe standard of the entries I read at this year’s Pulp Idol was exceptional. It’s a superb competition, seeking talent in places where many don’t think to look, and the variety of the writing I was introduced to impressed me enormously. - Luke Brown, Senior Editor, Tindal Street PressNew writers pen their first chapters, and judging by this standard, the future of the novel is in good hands. - Debbie Morgan, Disappearing Home
