NaNoWriMo '09 Contest
|Deadline:||Dec 7, 2009|
November is coming up, and you know what that means: warm up your word processors, refill your fountain pens, gnaw at your pencils, sharpen your quill nubs, and set the espresso machine to overdrive because it's NaNoWriMo time!
It's that magical time of year where writers from all over the world hunch down in their favorite writing corners to produce a 50,000 word novel. Some will succeed, some will fail, but most everyone should be able to get Chapter 1 done—and that brings us to this month's contest!
Submit the first chapter of the NaNoWriMo novel you're writing to enter our NaNoWriMo '09 writing contest. It won't be your best work ever (after all, 50,000 words in 30 days is a lot to write), but that's the point. We want to see your raw, unedited writing. Everyone will be on the same playing field, so don't be shy—let's see what you've got. Good luck!
Winners have been announced! Log in to see them.
|1st prize:||$50 Amazon.com gift card|
|2nd prize:||$25 Amazon.com gift card|
Your entry must be the first chapter of a piece of long fiction.
Entries must be received by December 7, 2009, and winners will be announced on December 14, 2009. Scribophile staff reserves the right to disqualify any contest entry for any reason and to change the terms of the contest for any reason.
Entries will be judged by the Scribophile staff, taking into consideration the ratings given by Scribophile members. Decisions are final.
Only one entry is allowed per member. Multiple entries will all be disqualified.
To enter the contest, post your work on Scribophile and tag it with "nanowrimo09" (without quotes). Your work will automatically be considered.
Entry is free, but you'll need karma points to post your work. You can earn karma points by writing critiques of work by other members.
Email submissions will not be accepted.
