Entice us. Submit the opening (up to 1500 words) of your book (any
genre) to Writer Advice’s 2nd Scintillating Starts Contest. I’ll respond
like an agent/editor. You get perspective.
DEADLINE: October 18, 2013.
JUDGES: Writer and editor B. Lynn Goodwin will judge and may
consult with other writers as part of the process. All finalists are
winners (small cash award) & can say that to prospective publishers.
PRIZES: Small cash award split evenly among all winners. ENTRY
FOR BEST RESULTS:
1. Include your name, contact information, and title in the
cover letter, but only include your title in the submission so
it remains anonymous.
2. Tell us if the submission is fiction or memoir in the cover
3. Since we judge these anonymously, please don’t tell us
your background or where you’ve been published. If you
are a finalist, we’ll ask for a bio.
4. Please double-space your submission.
SUBMISSIONS: All entries should be submitted through Submittable.
You may enter UP TO THREE stories, but each is a separate
submission with a separate fee of $20.
Winning pieces will be posted in the fall issue of Writer Advice.
