Writer’s Digest Popular Fiction Contest

WD Popular Fiction Awards

The deadline of the Writer’s Digest Popular Fiction Awards Competition is Wednesday November 1, 2006. Please note that there is an entry fee for this contest. Click on the above link to read the entry guidelines, submit manuscripts online, and so on. The grand prize winner will apparently recieve cash, books, a manuscript critique, and marketing advice, while the first place winner in each genre category will receive the same, but the cash prize will be smaller.

Even if you don’t plan to enter the contest, it can be a great exercise to force yourself to write something that adheres to that contest’s guidelines. This can be a marvelous way to practice writing saleable work. And if you really like what you’ve created, consider submitting it–to the contest in question, or, if the parameters fit, somewhere else that seems appropriate.
