Literary Agent Nathan Bransford is holding a contest on his blog. For details, click here, but basically you enter the first paragraph of your WIP (work-in-progress) in the comments section of his blog.
I like contests like this, because they’re low-key (meaning you don’t have to fill out a bunch of forms and tailor the writing to their specifications, NOT that the writing can be crappy.) Also if you happen to be the winner out of over a thousand entries (good luck to us all,) you will win cool stuff and feedback from a seasoned professional. Not only is Nathan Bransford a literary agent, he’s coming out with his own book. So he knows the writing world from both sides.
Deadline for entries is THURSDAY 4pm. So sharpen up that first paragraph and post it!
