UPDATED 11:18 AM CST Read, Set, Submit!!!

(Art provided by Sean Mcconnell)


The fiction part of the contest is now closed. If you submitted your fiction manuscript in the non-fiction file you will get a rejection asking you to resubmit correctly when the contest is over. I will announce that here, on Facebook and on Twitter.

If you have a non-fiction manuscript you may still submit it. Please only submit true non-fiction works. Based on a true story is not non-fiction. Historical fiction is not non-fiction. It must be Non-fiction. We have about ten spots we would like to fill with Non-fiction.

Ready

Set

Submit


Good luck, everyone!

Hi Sharon! The link says it is only for non-fiction picture books, but I can't find the fiction link. Not sure how to proceed. Thanks!

I am having the same problem, Sharon. I would like to submit a fiction piece, but it specifically says nonfiction... Thanks!

Sharon, I apologize--I just saw on your blog that you posted the Fiction portion of the contest is now closed. I apologize--I mistakenly posted my story on the Non Fiction entry form because I was unsure. Please delete my entry, if possible, from the NF competition as it is fiction. I don't want to take the slot away from a NF entry. I sincerely apologize for my mistake.

ann magee said...

Sharon, I just withdrew my submission on the AKA Literary website. Again, I apologize for any inconvenience.

Doreen E. Lepore said...

Thanks, Sharon and Terrie!

Robyn Campbell said...

So does this mean fiction is closed for good? Or will it open later in the week? Thanks!

Crystal Collier said...

I did not find the fiction link in time like others. I had inadvertently posted my mss in the non-fiction category, and then realized it was too late to submit again. I understand fiction entries are closed for now (insert boo's lol!), but I will watch for updates for when it might open again. Thank you Sharon for all you do.
