Are You an Unpublished Novelist?

Are you yearning to get your work into the public eye? If so, you might want to check out our awards program, OUT OF THE SLUSH PILE, Novel Journey’s Fifteen Minutes of Fame Contest.

Today (May 10) is the last day to submit your Science Fiction/Fantasy/Horror story—if it arrives by 11:59 pm, you’re entered. But if your quirky tale is not quite ready, hang on: we’ll revisit that category later in the year, and you can catch us then.

Historical Fiction is coming up after that, with the winner announced July 12, followed by Suspense/Crime/Mystery/Cozy Mysteries on August 9. But whatever your genre—contemporary, middle grade, romance, etc.—we’ve got a slot for you.

So download an entry form, fill it out, and attach it, along with your first chapter and a 1- to 2
-page synopsis, in an email to

Questions? Send them to that same address, and you’ll get a prompt reply.

We appreciate all the great entries we’ve received so far and look forward to receiving many more throughout the rest of the year.

We love our readers!
