Ink and Insights

Ink & Insights is a writing contest geared toward strengthening the skills of independent writers by focusing on critique and feedback from industry professionals. Each entry is assigned four judges who specialize in the genre of the manuscript. They read, score, and comment on specific aspects of the manuscript. (Characters, dialogue, style, pace, tension, etc. for novels.)

Once all four judges have finished, the four scoresheets with feedback are returned to the writer with a numerical score.

In August, or when all submissions have been read, we will announce the contest placements, and the top three manuscripts in the Master and Nonfiction categories will move on to the Agent Round.
