It’s January 20, which means there are ten days left to submit a manuscript for The Great Novel Contest 2020! The submission period officially closes on January 31 at midnight.

Dust off that manuscript and submit it here.

Submit your manuscript for a chance to win $1,000 and a publishing contract with Bellwether

The runner up will receive $500, a publishing consultation with OWA President Brad Pauquette, and a letter of recommendation for agents and publishers. 

The top ten finalists will take home a $50 voucher for 2020 OWA writing classes and be publicly recognized for their awesome manuscripts. 

Submit your manuscript here and take a step closer to that dream of being published. And, you know, money.
