To celebrate the 2014 Writing & Self-Publishing Open Day, Kobo Writing Life and SilverWood Books are delighted to announce an exciting new writing competition.

The Open Day Writing Competition is geared towards original, unpublished or self-published, fictional, English language manuscripts.  The manuscript submitted must be the entrant’s own work, and the entrant must own the copyright to all work in its entirety.

One Winner and one Runner Up will be selected by a dedicated review panel on the basis of the combined strength of the synopsis and the single chapter submitted.

 

The First Prize will be a SilverWood-produced ebook published with KWL plus a paperback edition sponsored by Berforts Information Press, published and distributed by SilverWood Books (info here).

The Runner Up will receive a new Kobo Aura H2O as prize.

 

Entrants are to submit a single page synopsis (no longer than 500 words) of the plot of the book they would like to publish along with first chapter (no longer than 5,000 words). Entries must be submitted as a single Word document containing synopsis and first chapter with page 1 being the title page containing the entrant’s full contact details, title of work and author name.
