Two New Writing Contests Announced

The Books of Hope contest ended last night, and Write Integrity Press has announced two more contests today!

The "One Hope" contest is for SINGLE books (rather than series) and is open to published and unpublished writers alike. You may submit fiction or nonfiction, and you may enter more than one book. Details for the "One Hope" contest are here.

The "Christmas Hope" contest is for single, Christmas-themed books, and the winning entries will be published THIS YEAR! This contest is perfect if you have a Christmas manuscript ready to go, or if you write quickly. You'll find all the details about the Christmas Hope contest here.

Manuscript Contest Deadline is Tomorrow

Just a reminder that tomorrow, June 15, is the deadline for Write Integrity Press's Books of Hope Contest. We've had entries in mystery/romance, women's fiction, historical, romance, YA, sci-fi, and in nonfiction as well - from published and unpublished writers. 

Entries for the first round of judging must include Chapter One of Book One, a one-page series synopsis, and short blurbs for all three books - we're seeking series in this contest.

If you're notified as a finalist, the manuscript for the first book must be completed by November 30th. The second and third books do not have to be completed at the time the contract is awarded.

As a reminder:

Write Integrity Press is thrilled to announce the Books of Hope Contest. We are seeking books in series of three, and winners could receive a three-book publication contract! The series of books can be fiction or nonfiction, but must carry a message of HOPE in some form or fashion. Be creative. Give us characters we can love in the novels, and issues we can care about in the nonfiction.

Final manuscripts should be in the 50,000-80,000 word range. We are trying to keep all of these books uniform in size, so please follow the word count guidelines.

  • This contest is open to published and unpublished authors. 
  • The second and third books do not have to be completed at the time a contract is issued. 
  • Previously published books are not considered.
