Writing Contests, Deadlines, and Write2Ignite Conference Registration!
Summer break (and summer weather) is here or near, providing a perfect opportunity for you to fine tune your writing plans, check schedules, and finalize writing contest and conference details! Here are events with summer deadlines you won’t want to miss!
- Write2Ignite Conference registration! Early registration saves $30 on adult full tuition and $15 on student (middle school through college) tuition. That’s money you can use for books, travel expenses, and more! Deadline for early registration: September 1, 2018.
- The “Faith and Freedom” writing contest cosponsored by Write2Ignite and EA Books Publishing! (Open only to those attending W2I 2018.) Benefits: there’s no extra fee to enter (conference registration and attendance qualify you), a wide range of genres is accepted, both youth and adults may apply, and winners will be published in an EA Books anthology. See full details here. Deadline for submissions: August 20, 2018.
- In her Encouraging Words newsletter, presenter Jean Matthew Hall reports that agent Cyle Young is having an open submission period, accepting “children’s, MG, YA, and adult audience books for the general and Christian markets, both nonfiction and fiction. . . . Tell them that Jean Hall sent you!” Send your submissions to email@example.com. Deadline for submissions: June 30, 2018.
