Between June 1 – June 30 (midnight, EDT)
Current SCBWI members in the Southern Breeze Region.
Only unpublished and uncontracted work. Should an entry become acquired by a publishing house after the contest opens for submissions, and before the contest winners are announced, that submission becomes disqualified. This allows another deserving Breezer a chance for recognition.
HOW TO ENTER
Polish and submit only your very best work. It will have stiff competition. Every submission should have been revised, critiqued, and fine-tuned as much as possible. Please read and follow all instructions.
Each writer may submit one manuscript.
WHY SHOULD I ENTER THE WRITING CONTEST?
- Each manuscript receives scoring sheet feedback from one to two published authors, depending on the number of submissions.
- The top 15 manuscripts in each category move onto the final round and receive feedback from an editor or agent judge!
- 1st Place Winner receives a free SCBWI membership.
- 1st, 2nd & 3rd Place Winners receive acknowledgement in the Southern Breeze News and social media sites, and of course, bragging rights to potential agents and publishers.
