New Wrinkle Publishing Writers Contest

Contest has ended.

Meet Our 2016 Contest Winner





2016 New Wrinkle Publishing Writers Contest - Writing Contest LogoOver the years, storytelling has taken many forms. The written word, music and visual art each tell a story in a unique way, but film has taught us that sometimes the combination is magic.

New Wrinkle Publishing was created to bring an intriguing idea to life. Why not give a book the same treatment as a film and add a soundtrack? Building on that idea, we created our first book, Ingrid – a novel with a lush, cinematic soundtrack, and illustrations to complete the experience.

Immersing yourself in a three-fold story is incredible, and the process of developing a story in this way is thrilling. It’s something we hope all writers will eventually have the opportunity to experience. So, we want to extend that opportunity to YOU.

Are you a novel writer?

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have your novel inspire illustrations, or even music?

If you are at least 13 years old, and have written a novel (or are currently writing one), we invite you to submit your short synopsis in our writing contest.

We want to give you the chance to have YOUR book Published, with Illustrations and a Book Soundtrack – because that’s what we do! And don’t worry … you won’t pay a dime – it’s all on us! – but you will retain all rights to your book and earn all royalties.

What To Do

1

Decide which novel to enter.

If you’re just now working on your first, great! Just prepare to have at least the first draft finished by around the time the contest ends (November 28th). However, you may enter any one of your novels, as long as you hold the rights to your book, and are willing to publish a second edition with illustrations, a soundtrack, and the services provided in our Grand Prize.

2

Write an amazing synopsis for your book.

Yeah, it’s easier said than done. But your synopsis is the only way we’ll be able to judge your work during the first stage of this writing contest, so make sure it represents your story well, and will leave us wanting to know more.

3

Fill out the writing contest entry form.

Head over to the contest entry page and work your way through the form. It’s simple to get through … just remember, if you’re under 18 to have your parents fill out the Parental Consent Form.

4

Share your entry and gather votes for a special prize!

Once your entry is live, start sharing, and collecting votes! Don’t worry. We’ll consider every entry for the grand prize, regardless of votes … but the more votes you get, the more visible you’ll be. Plus, there’s an awesome secondary prize, specifically for the person who gets the most votes! *One vote per day, per person. (See FAQ for more voting rules.)

ENTER NOW!

What’s up for grabs?

New Wrinkle is offering TWO awesome prizes to writing contest participants!

Our Grand Prize will go to the author of the story our team loves the most. However, since we know everyone will be working hard to get votes, we want to reward that, too. So, the author of the entry that receives the most votes will receive a Prize for Initiative.
