Most writers feel like they have “a novel in them.” Some have even started writing it, while others just need a bit of a nudge to get those writing juices going. Well, FaithWriters just may have the nudge for you!

If you are a FaithWriters Platinum member, we have an amazing contest – with amazing prizes – that you can enter for free – and you have over seven months to prepare! Enter the Ninth Annual Page Turner Writing Contest, sponsored by FaithWriters and Breath of Fresh Air Press. And this year, the focus is Christian fiction.

Maybe you’ve got a half-written fiction manuscript gathering dust in the bottom of your wardrobe. Perhaps it’s something you wrote during NaNoWriMo last year. It could even be an idea that’s been brewing in the back of your mind for years. Whatever the stage of your novel, this contest is just the spur you need to get writing and polishing – and we will even give you until the end of October to get your entry ready.

Sound good? Well, here’s what you need to do. First of all, if you are not already a Platinum member, upgrade your account. Next, write, edit and polish at least one chapter of your manuscript. Once that’s done, prepare an overview of the planned book. Combine the book overview and first chapter in one Word or RTF document, and you’re all set to enter.

One entry will be chosen as the FaithWriters Page Turner Champion for the year, with the author receiving*:

1. A fabulous cash prize of $500 (US);

2. The offer of traditional publication of their winning manuscript by Breath of Fresh Air Press;

3. Final editing of their manuscript (through Breath of Fresh Air Press);

4. Free publicity and marketing of their book on all FaithWriters’ sites for twelve months following publication; and

5. A special Page Turner Champion award plaque.

Two Page Turner runners-up will each receive*:

1. A cash prize of $50 (US);

2. A special Page Turner award plaque; and

3. Consideration for future publication by Breath of Fresh Air Press

* Terms and conditions apply as outlined on the full information page for Platinum 500 members HERE.

Brief feedback on your entry by Deb Porter (Breath of Fresh Air Press) will be available after the contest is concluded. However, this feedback will only be provided at the entrant’s request, which should be noted at the top or bottom of the book overview.
