Query.Letter.com writing contest

A while back, I posted about this contest, and offered readers the chance to participate. Well, the contest has now closed, and the winners decided. In the first ten, there was one winner from the UK, one from Ireland, one from Australia, one from Canada, one from Sweden, and the rest were from the United States. According to the site’s administrator:

“It was a huge success, with a total of 3,847 submissions! … We were really impressed by the fantastic work carried out by all the authors … We think there’s a lot to learn from these expertly crafted blurbs.”

Lana, site administrator

Win $500 for writing!

Can you write a blurb for a hypothetical book? QueryLetter.com is running a competition for would-be writers, and there is a prize of $500 on offer!

This writing contest is all about book blurbs. The twist? They want blurbs about completely made-up, nonexistent books. Get creative!

Write and submit a back cover blurb of 100 words or fewer that sets the stage for a novel, establishes the characters, and raises the stakes in a way that makes readers want to find out more; but hurry: the competition closes in a week’s time, on September 15, 2020, at noon (US Eastern time).
