This is it! The absolute biggest writing contest we’ve EVER put together, and with it, a chance to win $1,000 in cash and prizes and have your completed, published book included in our Scribbler box! This January, we want to read your manuscript - yes, the whole thing! One winner will receive an offer to be included in our Scribbler subscription box if you find publication with a traditional or small press publisher. This means you can take this win to any literary agent and - in your query letter - explain that you have *guaranteed sales of your book if they sell your book to a publisher (which should be easier for an agent to do with Scribbler sales as leverage). This contest is open to all fiction genres: adult, young adult, or middle grade. The rights to your book belong exclusively to you. No part of your story will be shared online or with anyone outside of our closed-door editorial team. This contest is sponsored by our friends at Book Pipeline.
Full Manuscript Review from Scribbler Editorial ($800 value) & $200 cash.
