Writers' League of Texas Manuscript Contest

This just popped into my inbox today and I thought I'd share it with all of you out there in the blog sphere. Writers' League of Texas is opening up for submissions to its annual Manuscript Contest. Having been a past winner in the Sci/Fantasy category in 2009, I can tell you that this is a worthwhile contest. My urban fantasy, Nephilim, took first place! Did winning shoot me to new heights of fame and glory? Well, no. But it did help me make a lot of connections with agents and authors that have been invaluable! Check our the blurb below and then click on the link to get even more specifics!--Mary Ann

Been slaving away on an unpublished manuscript that's finally ready to see the light of day? Well, here's your chance! You are invited to submit a short synopsis and the opening pages of your unpublished work to the League’s 14th annual Manuscript Contest. The winner in each category will meet individually with an agent at the 2014 Writers’ League of Texas Agents Conference, June 27 – 29, 2014. You do NOT have to be a member of the Writers' League to enter this contest.


This contest gives you the chance to…
• Attend a private meeting with a literary agent in your genre
• Have your work professionally critiqued by a published author
• Find out how your first ten pages rank against others in your genre
• Be recognized at the 2014 WLT Agents Conference

 What’s new for 2014?
This year, the Manuscript Contest has gone 100% digital! All entries must be submitted online, and payment must be made online via credit card at the time of submission. Checks and paper entry forms are no longer accepted.
