Contest for Teen Novel Publication
Wyvern Publications, my publisher for The Voices of Ire, is holding a contest for a publishing contract. There is an entry fee, but I think it may be worth it if you have a teen novel you couldn't get an agent for just sitting around. The due date's not until December, so there's even enough time to write a completely new teen novel by then, especially if you do one for NaNoWriMo in November.
This is taken right off their website:
"Please send in the first chapter of your completed novel, a one page complete synopsis, and payment with the entry form (see downloads at the bottom of this page). We're looking for unique teen fiction in any genre. We want something fresh, engaging and character driven. No extreme violence, sex or profanity please.
Closing date is 12 December 2010 and the winner is announced 5 May 2011. The most promising entry will win a full novel and synopsis critique worth £350 and a publishing contract.
Post entries to: Wyvern Publications, 29 Nash Close, Lawford, Essex, CO11 2LE. E-mail submissions for non UK residents only please..."
Anyone going to enter? If so, I'll help you out and read your chapter before you send it in!
