At 1:00 PM EASTERN TODAY, submissions will open for the following:
*The first 50 words of your manuscript, completed or in progress*
- Send your submission to authoress.submissions(at)gmail.com. YOUR SUBMISSION WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED AT ANY OTHER ADDRESS. (Yes, some were sent to the wrong place last week.)
- Format your submission as follows (EXACTLY):
TITLE: type it here
GENRE: type it here
Type your 50 words here
REMOVE THE SIG LINE AT THE END OF YOUR EMAIL (if you have one)
- Most of the hotmail issues have been dealt with. However, if you run into trouble when submitting from a hotmail account, TRY AGAIN FROM A DIFFERENT EMAIL ADDRESS. (Remember: We. Hate. Hotmail.) If hotmail is your sole account, please be sure NOT to send your submission in plain text, as this seems to create the most problems.
- No picture books this time. 50 words is too high a percentage of the total book length. We'll save PBs for our 25 word rounds.
- Submissions will remain open until midnight or 50 entries have been reached, whichever comes first.
- There will be 2 alternates assigned; if you receive an alternate number, please understand that your entry will only be included if one of the 50 is redacted or disqualified.
- ALL GENRES EXCEPT EROTICA are invited.
