Novel Slices contests are open twice yearly: In January/February and in July/August. We will open the second contest for entries on December 28th -- we are excited to announce that Bethany Ball, author of What to Do About the Solomons and the forthcoming The Pessimists, will be the judge!
Thank you to all who entered the first novel excerpt contest.
Congratulations to our five winners:
Betty J. Cotter
Laura Ruth Loomis
Wishing you happy writing between now and December 28th!
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.
