The West Virginia Writer's annual writing contest is well under way.
Time to edit and get those manuscripts ready to submit.
I usually wait until the last minute to submit, that is just the way I am.
I am fine tuning my MG manuscript to enter in the children's category. It received an honorable mention last year. I would so like it to place in the top three.
I'm looking at the beginning with a magnifying glass.
Checking for good description and detail.
Trying to find just the right words.
If you live in West Virginia or are a member of WVWriters, you can enter their contest.
Deadline is March 15th, late deadline is March 31st ($2 late fee).
The winners will be announced at the West Virginia Writer's Conference in June.
Go here for a look at the entry form and the many categories available to submit to.
Any suggestions on how to make a manuscript stand out to a judge?
Are you fine tuning any of your manuscripts for a contest or submission to publishers?
