CREATIVE AND PROFESSIONAL DREAMS

Eggcellent Manuscript Assessment Competition

Busybird Publishing is now running their Eggcellent Manuscript Assessment Competition, in which winners – in the categories of NovelMemoirSelf-helpKids Picture Book, and Poetry – will each receive a comprehensive manuscript assessment.

A manuscript assessment is a report examining structure, content/plot, prose, characters, grammar, punctuation, spelling, publishability, and marketing. This is a critical part of the development of a manuscript.

Requirements

  • the entry fee is just $25.00
  • submit the first 5,000 words
  • pitch your book in two sentences (on the entry form)
  • download the entry form, fill it out, and send it back (if you save the entry form to your computer, you can fill it in directly)
  • manuscripts don’t have to be finished, but do need to hit a certain word ceiling (check the entry form)
  • you can enter as many times as you like!

It’s that simple!

Submission Window

  • Submissions open 1st July and close 15th August.

Winners

  • Winners will be announced at Busybird Publishing’s Open Mic Night on 18th September
  • Every entrant will get a 15-minute consult with our director of Publishing, Blaise van Hecke.
