Are you busy writing, tweaking, and revising your writing sample for the Injoy, Inc. writing contest?

You don’t have to write a whole book. You don’t have to be almost finished with your book.

We just want to see a sample of your writing so we can see your writing style, and how you put words together, and what kind of characters and dialog you use in your fiction writing. If you’re writing a nonfiction book, we just want to see how your express your ideas on your topic.

Your sample can be one chapter from anywhere in your book. Your sample can be one chapter from the front, and one from the middle OR back of the book.

Maybe you haven’t even started writing your book, and you just have a great idea. Well, go to one of your favorite spots where you can think. Take a notebook and a couple fresh pens, and begin writing. Just begin to create your characters and your world—or just jump into the middle of the story and write a really fun and interesting scene!

Writers love deadlines, and even if you think you don’t have time to enter this writing contest, YOU CAN STILL WRITE A WINNING ENTRY by February 28th!

A good writer can sit down and write for a couple hours, and then lay it aside, come back and review it, lay it aside, and go away and think about it, and then come back and revise and proofread and edit, and be ready to submit their writing sample for the writing contest right here.

If you are selected as a finalist, then we’ll help you put together your proposal (some sample chapters, your characters outlined, a listing of calendar dates of when you will submit your chapters and the final manuscript, and your ideas for the final book). From those proposals, we’ll select the grand prize winner, and help them finish and publish their book.

You could be our next author. Check out these book covers from some of our other student authors.
