I'm having trouble getting to the online form, a page keeps coming up saying the contest is closed.
But if you go here, it will show you the rules of the contest.
You cannot enter if . . .
- You are a professional writer, such as a novelist, magazine, blogger or newspaper writer who writes books or articles for pay.
- You have authored a work of fiction that has been published or is about to be published in exchange for payment.
- You are a volunteer of the First Book Advisory Board or an employee of General Mills, Archway Marketing Services, First Book or any of their respective parents, subsidiaries and affiliated companies, or a member of the immediate family (parent, children, siblings, spouse, regardless of where they live) or same household of such employees (whether related or not).
There is no entry fee, so what have you got to lose?
I entered it once, and I plan to enter again this year.
I'm hoping that next year I won't qualify. :)
Good Luck if you enter! The first place prize is pretty good.
The Form is now showing up. You can go here for the form!
