NaNoWriMo is a brilliant project for finally getting that book out of your head and onto the paper – but that’s not the end of the journey.
Leesburg, VA (PRWEB) November 30, 2012
In November, Curiosity Quills Press announced the second annual NaNo-Virtuosos Competition, a project that challenges successful NaNoWriMo participants to put their new manuscripts to the test with over two months of edits, rewrites, voting and professional feedback.
And now, with November over and the dust settling in writing rooms across the world, the doors have opened for entries!
Submissions for all genres are open from the 1st to 10th of December, and with the official beginning of the competition comes the revelation of the first two of five mystery judges on the event panel.
Bestselling independent author of the Judas Chronicles and many more, Aiden James, brings a wealth of experience in honing your style and writing for an audience.
A regular contributor of guides and how-to articles to the Curiosity Quills Press blog, Gabriela Pereira of DIY MFA lends her technical expertise.
So, get those manuscripts in while you can, for the chance for both you and your readers to win some amazing prizes. Authors will be fighting for prizes including professional editing, cover art and a grand prize of an exclusive publishing deal through Curiosity Quills Press.
For the readers who are actively participating in helping their favorite authors make it through the competition, this year’s "Synergy Prize" is a Google Nexus 7 32gb HSPA+ Tablet.
Curiosity Quills Press Director, Verity Linden, shares some words of encouragement with her fellow writers:
"NaNoWriMo is a brilliant project for finally getting that book out of your head and onto the paper – but that’s not the end of the journey. Writing is rewriting, and the NaNo-Virtuosos Competition is all about making your masterpiece-in-waiting into the best it can be. You put blood, sweat and tears into that manuscript, and now feedback from peers and professionals can drive you to make it as good as you know it can be, and maybe even get you published!"
