Write On! Online - Short Fiction & Non-Fiction/Essay Query Contest

Remember those article and short-story queries you promised yourself you would submit this year? Now, you have an extra reason to sit down and work on them: The Write On! September Challenge: Short Fiction & Non-Fiction/Essay Query Contest. A query is the letter sent to a publication, used to sell an article, short story, or essay, as well as the writer.

Author Wendy Burt-Thomas, The Writers Digest Guide to Query Letters, will select the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners from the finalists!

THE SEPTEMBER CHALLENGE: SHORT FICTION & NON-FICTION/ESSAY QUERY CONTEST

First Prize: A medium-length (or 21,000 word) one-reader iScript (an iScript is a digital recording of a manuscript, read by an actor)

Second Prize: A 20-minute writing-coaching session with Debra Eckerling, Write On Track LA via Skype or phone

Third Prize, eBooks, courtesy of VBT: Writers on the Move’s Carolyn Howard-Johnson (author of the acclaimed HowToDoItFrugally series): The Frugal Editor and The Great First Impression Book Proposal.

There is no fee to enter this contest. Email your query to Debra@WriteOnOnline.com by Thursday, September 30. Winners will be announced on Write On! Online on Monday, October 11, and in the Write On! October Newsletter.
