February is almost here, which means you only have two days left so submit your manuscript to The Great Novel Contest 2020! The submission period officially closes on January 31 at midnight.

Hurry and submit your novel before the contest ends!

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

One runner up will receive $500 and a publishing consultation with OWA president and publishing expert Brad Pauquette, as well as a letter of recommendation for agents and publishers.

Ten finalists will be featured in a Finalist Spotlight article on the OWA site and receive a $50 voucher for OWA writing classes.

We can’t think of a better way to kick off the new decade than living the #publishedlife with a bit of extra pocket money.
