Announcing the 1st Annual Contest!

By this time, we hope you’ve been inspired to work on some stories of your own. They may not be novels yet, but they could be the start of something big.

How do you know if you’re on the right track?

Almost all professional writers have a critique group–people they trust to read their early drafts, comment on what’s good, and offer ideas for making the story even better.

That’s why we’re hosting the 1st Annual contest–our Christmas gift to you!

We’ll post more details after the first of the year, but basically:

  • Regular readers will have until midnight, May 1, 2010 to submit the first 12 pages of a story they have written independently.
  • Only readers subscribed by email or RSS Feed are eligible, but subscribing is easy. Just follow the directions in the left side bar under “Subscribe.”
  • Entries will be critiqued by one or more of our contributors.
  • Winning entries in each category will receive a full critique and a copy of A Novel Idea: Best Advice on Writing Inspirational Fiction, a compilation of tips from best-selling Christian novelists.

So be looking through your stories to decide which one you’d like to polish over the next few months, and don’t forget to subscribe to receive this blog regularly!

Merry Christmas from all of us!
