Today's post is a PSA for all you mystery writers about a writing contest you can enter. The following information was provided for me to share with you from Inkitt. If it strikes your fancy and you enter, I wish you good luck...
What is Inkitt?
Inkitt is a free writing platform that helps authors reach their full potential. Users collaborate with fellow writers and readers to give each other feedback and improve their work. Inkitt's vision is to help writers get the exposure they deserve and the publishing deals they covet, without having to jump through the fiery hoops of traditional publishing or wade in the shark-infested waters of self-publishing. They opened a new writing contest for entries June 4th.
Mystery and Thriller - Fated Paradox
The theme for the contest is “Fated Paradox: Tales of gripping suspense.” They want you to keep them on the edge of their seats with your best mystery and thriller stories. Submit accounts of murders and red herrings, or have them biting their nails over stories full of adrenaline and espionage. Leave them breathless with your tales of unmatched suspense.
What are the guidelines?
They accept original fiction stories of any length. Entries must be posted on the Inkitt contest page to be considered eligible. The contest opens on June 4th and closes on July 4th. The contest is completely free to enter, and authors will retain all rights to any and all works submitted in the contest. The top 10% based on reader votes get the chance to be picked by the Inkitt staff for 1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes.
What are the prizes?
1st Prize: $50 cash, 5 printed copies of the winning story with custom Typography (created by Inkitt’s designer).
2nd Prize: $40 cash
3rd Prize: $20 cash
All entrants will have the chance to show their work to a rapidly growing community of authors and readers hungry for high-quality fiction.
