The Queryletter.com Writing Contest
This writing contest is all about book blurbs. The twist? We want blurbs about completely made-up, nonexistent books. Get creative!
Write and submit a back cover blurb of 100 words or fewer that sets the stage for a novel, establishes the characters, and raises the stakes in a way that makes readers want to find out more.
Let your imagination go wild—and who knows? You may be inspired to turn your blurb into a novel of your own one day.
We will award one prize of $500 to the best blurb.
The submitted blurbs will be judged by our team of query letter writers based on how effectively they hook readers, taking into account the writing style and the overall impression.
