NEW: Publication of the winning entry now included.

FaithWriters.com and Breath of Fresh Air Press are pleased to announce the tenth annual Page Turner Writing Contest - and this year we're celebrating in a really big way.

If you are a member of the FaithWriters Platinum 500, you are invited to enter this very special contest created just for you. If you are not yet a Platinum member, this is the perfect reason to upgrade your membership.

Maybe you've got a half-written manuscript gathering dust in the bottom of your wardrobe. Perhaps it's something you wrote during NaNoWriMo last year. It could even be an idea that's been brewing in the back of your mind for years. Whatever the stage of your manuscript, this contest is just the spur you need to get writing and polishing-and we will give you until the end of September to get your entry ready.

Sound good? Well, here's what you need to do:

1. Write, edit and polish at least one chapter of your manuscript. You may seek professional editing input to polish your chapter.

2. Prepare a book proposal, including such things as the synopsis or book overview, the target reader (e.g. adult/young adult/women/new adult, etc.), the genre, similar books already on the market, and what makes your book different. Think of this as being your pitch to a publisher. In other words, be concise, clear, and attention grabbing.

3. When you have a book overview and a polished first chapter, combine the two as one Word or RTF document (book overview first, followed by the chapter), and you're all set to enter the 2016 Page Turner Contest.

This year, there will be two Page Turner winners-one from the fiction submissions, and one from the nonfiction submissions. These two champions will each receive:

1. A fabulous cash prize of $250 (US);
2. The offer of traditional publication of their winning manuscript by Breath of Fresh Air Press;
3. Free publicity and marketing of their book on all FaithWriters' sites for twelve months following     publication; and
4. A special Page Turner Champion award plaque.

A Page Turner runner up will be chosen from each of the two categories (fiction and nonfiction). Each runner up will receive:

1. A special Page Turner award plaque.

* Terms and conditions apply as outlined on the full information page for Platinum 500 members HERE.

Brief feedback on your entry by Deb Porter (Breath of Fresh Air Press) will be available after the contest is concluded. However, this feedback will only be provided at the entrant's request (which should be indicated by checking the appropriate box on the entry form. Many people enter the Page Turner purely for this very helpful feedback.
