Prizes (for three winners) include:

  1. Agent critique of the first 10 double-spaced pages of your work and

PLUS– and here’s where you should really get excited– at least one past judge has gone on to sign a winner and sell two of her books! Think of just how lucky you might get here…

How it works:

  2. Submit your real name, contact email, book title, one-sentence logline,150-200 words entry and proof of sharing via social media.
