Two more contests

Through The Swivet, the blog of agent Colleen Lindsay, you can enter to win one of two scholarships to the
Backspace Writers Conference & Agent-Author Seminar, which will be held in New York City from May 27th through the 29th.

Some important details:
  1. You MUST have a finished novel that is ready to query. No exceptions.
  2. The scholarship covers admission to the conference only, not travel or hotel expenses. If you're coming from outside the New York-area, bear this in mind.
  3. The contest is open only to fiction (any genre, adult, YA or middle grade) and narrative non-fiction manuscripts.
  4. Entries must be postmarked by Monday, March 1st.

Entry fee
$10 per entry, payable to Gotham Writers' Workshop. Payments must be in U.S. funds. Entry fees are nonrefundable.

Entry must be submitted online by midnight, May 31, 2010.

1. Entries must be submitted online only, using the official entry form above. Mailed entries will not be accepted.

2. All entries must be original and previously unpublished in a book, nationally distributed periodical or Web-based magazine. Entries must be in English and submitted by the author, who must be at least 18 years old at the time of entry.
