Last Call for Lone Star Writing Competition

The deadline is June 5, less than a week away for the Lone Star Writing Competition, one of the most prestigious contests available to authors -- unpublished and published.

Last year's Lone Star Writing Competition resulted in 32 requests from editors and/or agents for manuscripts.

That is amazing, and it happens because agents and editors are final judges.

So even if you don't win the category you enter, you may get a request from a publishing professional for your full manuscript.

That's what makes Lone Star Writing Competition one of the best contests available to unpublished and published authors.
