Why enter this contest?
Your chances of winning are higher, because there are six winners. Moreover, we do not expect you to carve your novel excerpt into the format of a short story, and so you are not starting out on uneven footing. In the first issue, we published 3 excerpts that started with Chapter One and two that started in the middle of the book. Last but certainly not least, our publication is marketed directly to literary agents as well as both small and large publishers, in order to give winning entries the greatest possible exposure.
