We only accept submissions to our two annual contests in March/April and September/October. The following are guidelines for the contests.
Enter the Novel Slices contest for a chance to be one of the 5 winners published in the third issue of Novel Slices. Each winner will receive $150, a copy of the winning print issue, and prime literary agent & publisher exposure.
Entry fee: $20 — includes a digital copy of the winning issue.
The judge for every contest is a well-known novelist
Why enter this contest?
Your chances of winning are 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. 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.
