Call for Volunteer Readers for 2019 Prize
We are looking for keen and talented volunteer readers to help us work towards a wonderful longlist for The Highland Book Prize 2019. If you enjoy reading (fiction, non-fiction, short stories, poetry), are able to read as many as six novels, or as few as one, in the space of seven weeks and provide a short report on what you’ve read, we’d like to hear from you.
What we’ll need from you:-
- a commitment to read your allocated submissions and write a short report following our scoring criteria
- the ability to read your allocated novels within a seven-week period (August 28th – October 8th, 2019) and submit your reader reports on or before Tuesday 8th October, 2019
- a declaration that you will not share or in any way distribute the reading material with which you’re provided
- an understanding that the material and any relating correspondence about the prize must be kept confidential
If you are interested, please send an email to email@example.com detailing:-
(1) why you think you’ll make an excellent reader for this project
(2) a list of the last three books you have read and
(3) a three sentence report for each book.
For more information, please contact Mirren, Richmond, Eilidh or Rachel at Moniack Mhor by email firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on 01463 741 675.
