Words For The Journey Annual Writing Contest!

It's time for the WFTJ annual writing contest!

Dying to see your book on a bookstore shelf? Now’s the time to polish both your idea and craft by entering our Spring 2010 non-fiction contest.

Submit Back Cover Copy and a related Query Letter for the book idea you’ve long pondered. Your back cover copy should be no more than 175 words, and should be on a separate sheet from your query letter. And your query letter—one page, 12 pt. Times New Roman—should be addressed to a publisher who may be interested in your material. So you have a little research to do.

The cool thing about this contest? You’ll be prepared to use your entry after the contest to submit to agents and editors.

The contest is open to writers in the Denver, CO area and The Woodlands, TX area.

First Place from each region will receive a $50 Amazon gift certificate. Second Place will each receive a copy of Polishing the Pugs, by Kathy Ide. Third Place will each receive $10 gift certificates to enjoy Starbucks.
