To be judged by Eric Darton
A New York Times bestselling author, Eric Darton has long been a champion of novel writers. Free City will be re-released by Dalkey Archives in July, 2020, and was originally published by W.W. Norton. His other works include Divided We Stand: A Biography of The World Trade Center (Basic Books, 1999, 2011), and an ongoing work of free scholarship, Book of the World Courant, availabe at www.bookoftheworldcourant.net.
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.
