Oh! I love me a contest or two. Especially when the prize is something like a critique, and bonus points for no entry fee.
And easy entry, too. Just the first 200 words of your manuscript.
This one is put out by Writer’s Digest, which is super cool. I am shamelessly re-blogging this from the Writer’s Digest Web Site:
Top 3 winners all get:
1) A critique of the first 10 double-spaced pages of your work, by your agent judge.
2) A free one-year subscription to WritersMarket.com ($50 value)!
MEET YOUR (AWESOME) AGENT JUDGE!
