FaithWriters has several different contests going on, whether you are writing book-length work, or shorter pieces. And at least one, I’m sure, is right up your alley. See the highlights of some of them here.
Do you have a book-length nonfiction manuscript started, sitting on the shelf, or brewing in your head? Then FaithWriters’ Eighth Annual Page Turner contest may be what you’re looking for. Just polish your first chapter, plus an overview of the rest of the book, and submit it no later than October 31, 2014 at the Page Turner page (you must be a platinum member to enter and access this page – click here to upgrade to platinum). The winner will receive fabulous prizes, incuding $800, free editing and marketing of the finished book, and more. Stop by this link for more details.
Maybe your book-length manuscript is fiction. If so, FaithWriters and Xulon Press are awarding a Xulon Best Seller Package and free premium publicity and marketing for the book on all FaithWriters sites to one Christian fiction novel with a sound biblical message. Platinum members can submit the first chapter and book synopsis/outline and be in the running for this prize. More details can be found here. Deadline for this contest is November 30, 2014.
Maybe shorter works are more your thing. If so, we have a few options in that area as well.
Any member can enter the newest blogging contest for the online church The Set Apart Church. Simply write a piece, 750 words or less, on this unique online non-denominational church with relevant online sermons. Winners will receive paid writing assignments or a free one-year Gold membership. Check out details here and here – but don’t wait too long. The deadline for this contest is April 15, 2014.
Maybe, sharing your testimony is more in your interest level. If you weren’t published in FaithWriters’ first testimony book, and you are a gold or platinum member, you’re eligible to enter our second testimony book contest. Fifty different testimonies, either of salvation or God’s provision during difficulties, will be chosen and published in our newest book. Those selected will be published and will participate in royalties. Check out the details here – and get your submission in before the deadline of August 15, 2014.
And last – but certainly not least, don’t forget the FaithWriters Writing Challenge, which will return from its quarterly break just two days from today. Watch for the new topic – and enter!
