Thank you to all who entered -- our first novel excerpt contest is now closed.
We aim to have results emailed to all entrants in mid-October.
If you missed the deadline, please check back in late December as we will have a second contest opening then, with a new judge to be announced.
Happy writing in the meantime!
Why enter this contest?
While the $150 prize is lower than some other contests, your chances of winning are much higher, because there are five 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. 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.
