Writer Beware ® Blogs!: The Brit Writers Awards: Questions and Threats | Metaglossia: The Translation World | Scoop.it

(Max Dunbar's blog provides a summary of some of these allegations.) I was especially worried about the BWA's Publishing Programme, which offered unpublished writers mentoring and publishing for £1,795 apiece. (Nearly a year later, I can find no mention on the BWA website of this program.)
