Aspiring Writers: Enter The Rising Star Contest While There Is Still Time.

Before I was a published novelist, I was a reader (still am, of course!), so I know that many of you readers out there have tried your hand at writing a novel of your own, as well. Maybe you finished it and it’s hidden away in a desk drawer. If that’s you, then here’s your chance to get your manuscript noticed. Here is all the information you need to enter the Rising Star Contest from a great organization called WFWA. We all have to start somewhere and this is a good way to take off. So, what other writing contests are out there for prepublished authors? Share if you have links.

Good luck, friends.
