We've got a new contest for you! And the grand prize is pretty cool. It's the proof copy of the Go Teen Writers book. It came to me for approval back in March. It looks just like the final books. So I signed it, mailed it to Stephanie, and she signed it too. It was the very first copy of the Go Teen Writers book in print and the only one so far that we've both signed. Cool?
Here's how the contest will work.
1. Sometime between now and 6:00 p.m. (Pacific time) Tuesday, April 23rd, you can fill out the form below and submit your essay. All you have to do is tell us about how you're respecting your dream of being a published author in 250 words or less.
2. After the contest closes, the entries will be judged. We will pick a grand prize winner and three runners up, depending on how many entries there are.
3. On Friday, April 26th, I'll post the top three essays. You will not receive an email that tells you whether or not you finaled. Please check back on the blog to find out. The winner will receive the autographed proof copy of the Go Teen Writers book. If the winner already has a copy of the book, we'll work out an alternate prize. Runners up will get a copy of Captives.
AND-- if the grand prize winner is international, we'll work out an alternate prize since it's too costly to ship the proof copy overseas. International runners up will get a copy of Captives too.
This contest is open to all ages and all countries. One entry per person please.
