One Page Summary Contest Information

This year, I'm running a one page summary contest. All entries should be a one page plot summary of a manuscript you have written. The top 5 entries will be posted and discussed on this blog (pending author approval of course). The top fantasy/sci fi/adventure/mystery summary will have its full manuscript requested for consideration for publication by CBAY Books. The top summary in any genre will have its full manuscript requested for consideration for publication by Blooming Tree Press. Since neither press is taking unsolicited manuscripts, this is a great chance to potentially have your work looked at.

To enter, email your summary to onepagesummary@gmail.com by 11:59PM (PST) Tuesday, November 17. Obviously this is a special email that I have set up specifically for this contest, so you don't have to worry about your entry being lost amongst my normal email chatter. Also, that means that you should title your email the title of your work. Please then place your summary in the body of your email. Do not attach anything. If you submit your summary as an attachment, I will delete it without opening and reading it. Also in your email, please before your summary include a one sentence line telling me the genre and age group (chapter book, midgrade, or YA) that the book is intended for.

And finally, here are the rules. Please read them all:
  1. This contest is open to any one page summary written for a fiction chapter book, midgrade, or YA novel.
  2. No non-fiction.
  3. Your summary must be for a work that you have already completed. If you win and I ask for your manuscript, you must be able to supply it immediately.
  4. Your summary must be a plot summary. Do not include teasers.
  5. Plot summaries must not exceed 300 words.
  6. I know I said this above, but NO attachments. I'm serious.
  7. All entries are due by 11:59 PM (PST) Tuesday, November 17. No exceptions.
I hope to be able to notify the top 5 by this Friday, and then run one summary a day next week. The top two winners will be announced on the Sunday after Thanksgiving.

Any questions? Put them in the comment section here, or message my profile over at Get Me Out of the Slushpile!.

Ah shoot, only 2 days to get this synopsis in to you? There's now way I can finish fully editing my novel in time :(

The Buried Editor said...

If you have a rough draft of the novel, that's good enough. I wouldn't be requesting the actual manuscript before the Sunday after Thanksgiving.

So the synopsis could be entered.

Xuxana said...

Oo, that's still cutting it a bit short to write a synopsis and finish the edit. I'll work really hard though, and give it a try. Sorry about the typo in my first comment ;)

Xuxana said...

Sorry I have to ask this, but I guess I'm not all that informed on publisher lingo. What does chapter book, midgrade and YA mean?

Natalie Aguirre said...

I'm so happy we have until the Sunday after Thanksgiving. I'm taking a working vacation this week to finish my manuscript. With another few days off next week, I think I can get it done without totally stressing out and not being nice to my family. Thanks so much for doing this.
