Please submit completed novels as word docs with a brief author bio and synopsis to

Best of luck!



  1. Do we have to tell anyone if we actually started the thing before NaNoWriMo started? (not that I'll have it done in time, but it's a good goal...)

  2. Oh goody! Now I have another reason to actually finish this thing!

  3. I notice the submission date is immediately after the end of NaNoWriMo. How will the... well, I guess I'd call it the "draftiness" of the manuscripts be addressed? Will we have time to clean them up later if they place? How concerned is the agency about lack of editing/finalization in the initial judging stage?

  4. Wonderful idea. Can't wait to finish it!
