What's Their Story?
This Contest is now CLOSED. I am overjoyed with the amazing entries and will announce the winner on Tuesday. Thank you all so much for entering!
So, I was thinking and thinking... and I was trying to figure out a good way to share some of the luck I've had this year in the publishing industry with other writers. I remember (because it was NOT long ago), feeling lost and adrift... writing hard, and searching even harder for an agent. I wanted nothing more than to have someone who was inside the industry take a look at my words.
And then it happened! It was so validating.
I'd like to give that gift to someone else who feels alone. So here goes:
Flash Fiction Contest! The winner of this contest will have their words (query letter, OR first ten pages of their manuscript) reviewed by either my agent at Pen and Ink Literary, Anne Bohner, OR my editor at Saint Martin's Press, Vicki Lame. If you win, you get to choose who you would rather submit to, and what you would rather submit.
The flash fiction should be submitted in the comments. No more than 300 words. AND it must tell the story of the picture above.
To enter the contest and be eligible for the prize you must:
Tweet the contest (or Facebook announce)
Follow me on twitter @thelostwitch (so I can announce things there) (or "like" my facebook fan page)
If you don't do social media, but have a blog, you can blog about it. Just let me know your blog so I can follow it and read your words too!
There will be THREE prizes:
1st prize: noted above
2nd prize: 25 dollar amazon gift card
3rd prize: A critique of either your query or first ten pages of your ms by YOURS TRULY. :)
Contest will close by midnight (Eastern Standard Time) Saturday 15th, 2012.
I can't wait to read submissions! Good luck!
PS: If you are don't have a query letter or a manuscript and you still want to enter, please do! If you win, I'll send you a gift card.
