We've put out the first heads-up announcement for our 2005 Novel Writing Contest. Please help pass the word to all of your colleagues in your various writing groups, etc. We're announcing it now to give all participants maximum time to get ready. We don't start officially taking submissions until March, and the deadline is not until the end of June, with judging in July and August. Check out the website for all the rules and details. We'd like to get a lot of participation, although we are limiting entrants to a maximum of 500. We only have so much capacity for judging.
Once again, we will be sponsoring this in partnership with the My Writer Buddy online writer's group. Their website owner, Denise Williams, will be chairing one of the three judging committees, and our Editors, Teri and Vickie, will be chairing the other two.
