Announcing our “Great Openings” Writing Contest

We want to see the opening page of your UNPUBLISHED nonfiction or fiction manuscript! It could be of a short story, essay, memoir, novel, self-help, or anything you think will captivate us from the first page. We are not accepting poetry, devotionals, or flash-fiction for this contest. We want to be aching to read what comes next, so make sure your opening is clear, compelling, creative, and captures the heart of what your full project is about.

$50 value prize and more! Open to members (free) and non-members ($15/entry).

Due to popular demand, we are extending the Closing Date for Entries to August 7th at Midnight
