Rising Writers

As well as focusing on established novelists, here at Hive we want to champion new authors too. Each month publishers let us know about their up-and-coming writers who are just starting out, and we shine a spotlight on them and their debut book.

Remember to keep watch on our Rising Writers – you never know where you'll see them next. Is there something we've missed? Let us know!

We hope you enjoy discovering something new.
