An incredible opportunity for writers in this increasingly difficult climate for publishing
Bloomington, IN (PRWEB) February 11, 2009
Wordclay, (http://www.wordclay.com) in association with its partner at Publishing Room are launching WritingRoom.com's 2009 Author's Choice Writing contest. Authors who submit their manuscripts to http://www.writingroom.com or http://www.publishingroom.com will have them judged by a three-expert panel for the chance to win free marketing and promotional services. The awards include:
- The grand prize winner will have his or her book read and considered by top New York literary agent Loretta Barrett and considered for publication by Editor Eric Raab of Tor/Forge Books.
- The top three finishers will have their manuscripts published, marketed and promoted.
- Each author judged in the top ten among submissions will receive manuscript improvement assistance from acclaimed bestselling author Jon Land--panel member and author of The Seven Sins, one of Library Journal's Top Five Thrillers of 2008.
"We at WritingRoom are very excited to offer this great opportunity to aspiring writers," said Lindsay Preston, CEO of Writing Room. "The top ten authors will have the experience of a lifetime, speaking and learning from best-selling author Jon Land. The education he will give each author will be invaluable."
"An incredible opportunity for writers in this increasingly difficult climate for publishing," said Jon Land, author of The Seven Sins and the forthcoming Strong Enough to Die (May 2009). "I get the sense that Author Solutions and PublishingRoom are on the cusp of the industry's future and they're offering writers the chance to come along for the ride. Sometimes dreams really do come true and this is one of those times."
Preston and Land will be joined on the expert panel by Susan Ludsin, retired English professor from John Carroll University in Cleveland, Ohio. Authors should visit http://www.publishingroom.com for all contest rules and submission timelines.
