The Hardie Grant Ampersand Project
This is an opportunity for YA writers to put their work in front of an editor.
‘The Ampersand Project runs annually in spring/summer. This year, submissions will open on Thursday 1st November 2012, and close at midnight on Thursday 31st January 2013. We’re looking for YA manuscripts from unpublished writers across all genres. Please refer below for guidelines.’
They are looking for YA manuscript (50,000 – 80,000 words). And to be eligible to enter, the writers should not ‘have been published under their own name with a mainstream publisher’.
(Their own name? Does this mean it is OK, if the writer was published under a pseudonym?).
They accept one submission per writer.

Best of luck!
