28 March 2013

First Chapter Writing Contest

Contest Submission Period: April Fool’s Day-June 1st, 2013

Entry Fee: Zilch. Nada. Zippo. It’s totally free to enter!

Contest Benefits: I will provide a short critique for all submissions highlighting the good, the bad, and the ugly. This is a HUGE benefit of entering my contest. We writers crave feedback. Feedback makes us better.

Prize: The winner will receive a $25 gift card to Amazon. But wait there’s more! As the champion, your winning story, your picture, and a little blurb about YOU will be featured on my website. And I’ll talk about you in social media land.

What to submit: Your funny first chapter. True or not true or a mixture of both, it doesn’t matter as long as it’s funny. I will have a funny meter and you will receive a score as part of your critique.

What not to submit (Big No-No’s): Prose of a nasty, evil, mean-spirited, or pornographic/graphic nature.

Word Count: 1000 word max meaning do NOT exceed 1000 words.

Two Kinds of Entry formats accepted: 1. I’ll accept a video clip if you think an oral delivery will enhance the comedic nature of your work. Big risk, big potential pay-off IF YOU NAIL IT. If you don’t . . . well let’s just say you want the right kind of laughter.

2. I’ll accept your written entry as part in the body of an e-mail only. I WILL NOT OPEN attachments. Repeat after me. Terri will not open attachments.
