Event Details

Send in the first chapter of your in-progress novel or memoir. We’re looking for first chapters that grab our attention and leave us wanting more. Your chapter should set the stage for the story to come, establishing key elements like character, world and conflict.

All qualified entrants will receive professional feedback and have the opportunity to revise their story prior to judging.

All finalists will receive $50 and anthology publication.

Must be 18 or older to enter.

We are keen to encourage quality submissions, so suggest writers to check their stories before submitting using Prowritingaid. They have free and paid versions and are the best writing software we know to help improve grammar, readability and check for repetition, ‘sticky’ sentences and suggest alternatives.
