The First Page Challenge – a writing contest for novelists
« on: April 29, 2019, 10:38:19 AM »
The First Page Challenge is a contest for writers who are shoulder-deep in a new manuscript. Hook us in a single page for a chance to win a growing prize pool, plus publication on our blog.

Our judge, Michelle Barker, will be asking herself one question: "how likely am I to turn this page and keep reading?"

Entry: $5 CAD
Top prize: $700 CAD
Deadline: September 30
2x mentioned in "Top Writing Contests" by Reedsy :)

Thanks :)

Contest is now closed. The site says to check back in May. This sounds like it would’ve been fun.
