ELIGIBILITY

This is an open call for writers who write fiction and non-fiction with a strong element of humor. Your story must be for an audience of 12 and older. You must be the owner of the book rights. Your work cannot be previously published by a traditional publisher even if it is out of print. Works that are self-published are acceptable.

SUBMISSIONS

There is a limit of one entry per person and e-mail address throughout the Contest Period. FREE registration is open from June 15, 2016 thru August 31, 2016. All submissions must be original and be in English. All entrants must use the AUTHORS.me submission platform that follows the eligibility guidelines. No submissions will be accepted by mail or email. Writers will complete a series of forms and upload a minimum of their first 30 pages. Complete manuscripts are preferred.

JUDGING

The general submissions will be reviewed to determine if the entry qualifies the writer’s manuscript for review. Judges include a group of distinguished industry professionals as noted above. Entries will be judged on the quality of the writing, originality of the story, and the uniqueness of the characters, and of course for its humor. Winners are determined by two rounds of judging. In the first round, judges will narrow down the entries to a group of semi-finalists. In the second round, judges will select the finalists and winners. No critical evaluation or commentary of your entry will be offered by the Judges.

PRIVACY

AUTHORS.me is all about the security of the writer’s work. No submissions will be made public. A writer can withdraw their submission and uploads at any time. If a submission is withdrawn prior to September 30, 2016, the writer becomes disqualified from winning.
