Upcoming Contests for Querying Writers

I've been neglecting the blog. Sorry the lack of posts this past week!

"The Writer's Voice" Contest
"The Writer's Voice" is a multi-blog, multi-agent contest hosted by Cupid of Cupid's Literary Connection, Brenda Drake of Brenda Drake Writes, Monica B.W. of Love YA, and Krista Van Dolzer of Mother. Write. (Repeat.). [They're] basing it on NBC's singing reality show The Voice, so the four of [them] will serve as coaches and select projects for [their] teams based on their queries and first pages.

Danielle Svetcov of Levine Greenberg has decided to add MYSTERY to her current list. In order to give her a jumpstart, [Authoress has] agreed to host a contest that showcases completed, query-ready manuscripts in this genre. Ms. Svetcov is eager to see what you've got for her!

Ruth Lauren Steven's Agent-Judged Contest
The idea is that [Ruth will] read the slushpile of entrants and choose ten or so that will skip the main slushpile of the agents and get a pass to the front of the queue. The agent will then select a winner(s) (maybe they like more than one!)

And this isn't a contest, but might still be of interest to some of you:

Submission for Fantasy Writers
Strange Chemistry is looking for all flavors of fantasy, science fiction, or horror, as long as it is YA. Find out more about the specific guidelines here.

Angry Robot is looking for adult Classic/Epic fantasy, only. Their guidelines are here.

The open door period only lasts until April 30th.

Happy Wednesday, everyone! ♥
