First Annual 1-2-3 Contest!

ACFW North Georgia Chapter announces its first annual 1-2-3 Contest for unpublished writers. This is your chance to submit a 1-page query letter, a 2-page synopsis, and the first 3-pages of your manuscript. These are the items that will catch an agent’s or editor’s eye, so they need to be great. All entries will be judged by and receive critiques from agented or published authors. The finalists’ entries will be judged by a panel of agents and editors, who will also vote for the best first line among them. The 1-2-3 Contest opens June 1, 2014 and the deadline for entries is June 30, 2014 at 4:00 PM EDT.
