#FicFest Writing Contest

Here are the Guidelines for the #FicFest Writing Contest. We have the teams ready to go and look forward to the contest start date. We  have a theme that will be announced very soon! You can visit Tiffany’s Website for all the great information.

FicFest Writing Contest – Tiffany Hofmann

This contest is open to all finished manuscripts and all genres for Children’s Books, Middle Grade, Young Adult, New Adult, and Adult. In this contest, each category will have three teams.

Teams will be made up of a Team Lead and two team members, who will pick three finalists and one alternate per team. This ensures that forty-five manuscripts will move on to the agent round, with fifteen manuscripts being held as alternates in case one of the finalists drops out of the contest.

Once the finalists are chosen, they will work with their teams on revisions for 8 weeks before the agent round. During the agent round, participating agents will be able to request partial/fulls from the manuscripts they want to see. There is no bidding, and no competition for agents.

They can request whatever intrigues them, giving everyone a huge opportunity to get requests and hopefully an agent for their manuscript. More rules, regulations, and details will be posted via the host and team lead blogs as the contest begins!

Please pass this information on to anyone who is a writer!!


Go write and have fun,

FicFest Writing Contest

I am working as a Team Leader for this contest for the Children’s Book/Picture Book Team. We are 70 days from launching this great opportunity for all writers. Check out the link below for more information:

FicFest is a brand new contest launching in 2016 that will help put manuscripts in front of agents. FicFest is unique in that this contest covers the five major categories of writing: Children’s Books, Middle Grade, Young Adult, New Adult, and Adult. The chances for each category to get agent requests is equal. Unlike most writing contests, an equal number of finalists will be chosen for each category so that one does not over power the other. FicFest creators also ensure that there will be a plethora of agents wanting each of these categories. Our goal is to help writers of all books get out there, get great feedback, and have the opportunity to get partial/full requests from agents. Fix
