Bonjour, mes amis!
Every Monday, here at the Midnight Type, we’re going to tell you a little bit about what’s going on in the writing world. If you know something we don’t, please please please feel free to drench our comments section in your wisdom…
Let’s get down to buisnez. Right now in the writing world, there’s this little competition taking place called NaNoWriMo. NaNoWriMo? What’s that? I hear you all cry — okay, so maybe you’re not all crying that, but there are some writer types out there that don’t know what NaNoWriMo is. So, for those types, NaNoWriMo is National Novel Writing Month. That means that during the month of November you are challenged to write a novel of at least 50k words. At the time of writing this post there were no fewer than 261,259 novelists signed up and taking part. To find out more about NaNo click the linky below:
50k in one month might have some of you shaking in your shoes. That’s okay. Our very own Jinx gets shaky and sweaty at the mere mention of deadlines and word counts. If shaky and sweaty is you after reading about NaNoWriMo, you might be interested in learning about ProjectREUTSway. ProjectREUTSway is brought to us by REUTS Publications and their grand prize includes being published in an anthology. Ladies and gents, if you can retell a dark fairytale, this is definitely worth a look. To find out more about ProjectREUTSway click the linky below:
Literary agent extraordinaire, Mandy Hubbard, of D4EO Literary, has an open submissions call out right now. She’s looking for both writers of NA and YA. Mandy is seeking the right voice to help work on a few projects in development. The great thing about this opportunity is that your project doesn’t have to be complete. She just wants to see 5-10 sample pages of perfectly polished writing. It’s not the story she wants…it’s your voice!! Interested? Click the linky below to find out more:
