Announcing our autobiographical novel writing contest
Bruce Rutledge
July 24, 2020

We have just launched our first-ever writing contest to find exciting new work. Our focus is the autobiographical novel, a genre that covers most memoirs, much literary nonfiction, and quite a few debut novels. If your manuscript is autobiographical in parts but blends fact with fictional elements, it qualifies. We're especially looking for work that begs for visual, graphic, or illustrative accompaniments. 

Multiple submissions are welcome as are entries from outside the United States. We do not accept self-published work or work that has been published elsewhere.

The author of the most promising and innovative manuscript as selected by our judges will be offered a publishing contract by Chin Music Press.

Our contest runs through October 31, 2020. The winner and a shortlist of finalists will be announced by the end of the year. 

If you're interested, submit your work, contact us at speak-at-chinmusicpress-dot-com. We look forward to reading it.
