Writing Contest News!!

Our volunteers and professional judges have been working behind the scenes to critique all the wonderful entries we received during the submission window for the 2021 Annual Writing Contest. The judges have made their decisions and the winners will be announced live during the November Monthly Meeting on Tuesday, November 9th at 7:30!

Along with query feedback, each manuscript will receive a scoring sheet from at least one Southern Breeze published author. The top 15 manuscripts in each category moved onto the final round and will receive feedback from the professional judge in that category. You can read the bios for this year’s judges here

Winners receive the following:

1st Place – Free SCBWI membership for a year.

1st, 2nd & 3rd Place – Receive acknowledgement in our newsletter and on our website and blog, as well as on all Southern Breeze social media.

Thanks to all to entered, our PAL authors who provided critiques to all entrants, our professional judges, and especially our contest coordinator, Debbie D’Aurelio! We couldn’t pull this off without her!
