Query Contest

Can you craft an exciting back-cover blurb for an imaginary book? If so, then why not get your creative, compelling juices flowing by entering QueryLetter.com’s writing contest? The best blurb will win a cash prize of $500. Deadline: Noon (U. S. Standard Time) on September 15.

Here’s the contest description:

“This writing contest is all about book blurbs. The twist? We want blurbs about completely made-up, non-existent books. Get creative!

“Write and submit a back-cover blurb of 100 words or fewer that sets the stage for a novel, establishes the characters, and raises the stakes in a way that makes readers want to find out more.

Let your imagination go wild — and who knows? You may be inspired to turn your blurb into a novel of your own one day.”

“The submitted blurbs will be judged by our team of query letter writers based on how effectively they hook readers, taking into account the writing style and the overall impression.


Your blurb must be original and previously unpublished.

Submissions must be 100 words or fewer.

Multiple entries may be submitted — each completely unique.

Submission grants the QueryLetter.com blog permission to publish your entry.

Sounds like a fun way to kick off the fall as we all write on!
