News just received from Richard Foreman, late of Endeavour Press…


The London Magazine are proud to announce our inaugural Novel Writing Competition, in collaboration with Author Enterprises.

As the oldest literary magazine in the UK, The London Magazine has been home to some of the most celebrated novelists in history – Evelyn Waugh, William Boyd, H.G. Wells, Joseph Conrad and Thomas Hardy.

Author Enterprises is a company which helps authors to become their own publishers and generate an income from their work. It specialises in publishing new and under represented voices. The company works with novelists, short story writers and nonfiction authors.

Author Enterprises was founded by Richard Foreman. Richard has worked as a literary consultant and publicist to numerous bestselling authors, including Simon Sebag-Montefiore, William Dalrymple and Kate Williams. He has also worked as a publisher and is a bestselling historical novelist.

In our first ever Novel Writing Competition, we hope to find a new and exciting literary voice to share with an international audience and become a part of The London Magazine’s colourful history.

All manuscripts should be between 40,000 and 120,000 words, and previously unpublished. Whilst there is no set theme or subject, we are looking for strong and entertaining “literary fiction” written with confidence and grace. This competition is open to international entries.
