Enter Writer Advice’s SCINTILLATING STARTS Contest for fiction, memoir, and creative nonfiction. Grab and hold us with your opening paragraphs. Send us up to 1000 words of your first chapter by 12/01/16.

Guest judges will be last year’s winners Carolyn Howard-Johnson and Kevin O’Keefe.

If your work is shared on Writer Advice, you’ll be able to tell prospective agents, publishers, and book buyers that you were one of the winners of Writer Advice’s Scintillating Starts Contest.

A cash award of $210 will be split among those whose work is shared. This is a change from what was posted earlier this year. The submission fee is still only $15.  

This contest is open to anyone who has not signed a contract for the book submitted. We are known for our feedback and would love to tell you what's working and what an agent might say. 

Questions (but not submissions) go to Lgood67334 AT comcast DOT net.
