FaithWriters has several contests going on this summer – ones for just about every type of Christian writing – from short to long, from fiction to nonfiction.
Let’s start with short writings. With the success of FaithWriters’ first testimony book (click here to see it and purchase), FaithWriters is planning to put out a second one. If you did not have your testimony in Trials and Triumphs, and you are a gold or platinum member, why not write it up for the new book? Check out details here (scroll down a bit) – but don’t wait too long. The deadline is August 15. You could be published – and receive royalties!
Also, the FaithWriters Writing Challenge comes back from its short break in just two days. Here is an opportunity to practice writing to a deadline, a topic, and a word count – and get feedback from fellow writers. Be sure to check the challenge main page on Thursday for the new topic!
If novel-length writing is more your cup of tea, we’ve got a couple contest for you -whether you are working on a novel or a work of nonfiction.
For non-fiction writers, be sure to enter the 2014 Page Turner Contest – open to any platinum member at no charge. All you need is the first chapter of your non-fiction manuscript, as well as a synopsis of the entire book (no – the book does NOT have to be completed to enter!). The winner will receive $800 cash, free editing of your manuscript, and more. But don’t delay – the deadline is October 31, 2014, with winners announced in December.
And all you novelists, we have a contst for you as well! FaithWriters and Xulon Press are giving away a Xulon Bestseller Package and free premium publicity and marketing on all FaithWriters’ sites to the best platinum member submission of a Christian fiction entry with a sound biblical message. Just submit your first chapter and a synopsis/outline of the book and you could be the winner of this package, worth over $2,000. Check here for more details on this contest.
