Hello all, and welcome to the launch of the Paragraphs of Power contest for 2012.
The rules are simple.
You need to write attention grabbing powerful opening paragraphs to a story. No more than 1000 words in total. In Any Genre. They must be from any unpublished work, or specifically written for this contest.
For the purpose of this contest, a published work is deemed anything that has had an ISBN number allocated.
The vote will be a blind one, the only identifier will be a title and a number allocated by myself.
I will be putting entries up weekly over the course of the month of July. The winner of each weekly post will go into the grand final vote at the end of July.
The winner will have any work of their choosing promoted on my blog for the entire following month. Plus a guest blog post on a date and topic of their choosing.
You know you can do it! Write powerful paragraphs that will grab and hold the attention of the readers, paragraphs that make us want more. Paragraphs that we will remember!
Send your entry to me at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject clearly noted...Paragraphs of Power contest.
Submissions are now open.
