Book Arts Bash Deadline Approaching

From the people at the Book Arts Bash:

News: We have extended the submission deadline to January 15, since our organizers are traveling in December and may not be available to answer all your questions on time.

Welcome to the Book Arts Bash, a writing contest for homeschooled authors. The Book Arts Bash celebrates untrammeled creativity, and promotes the integration of writing across the curriculum. We put homeschooled students' best work on the desks of literary agents, best-selling authors, and other industry professionals, to encourage young writers and connect great minds.

Our first Book Arts Bash happened in fall of 2008. You can visit the contest site here to view the winners and take a look at our impressive list of judges. We had such an overwhelming number of novels submitted last time that this year we decided to focus on novels exclusively! It's going to be a novel year! What's new this time?

1. All digital.
2. All novels.
3. All free.

With larger monetary prizes ($100 for first place in each category) and critiques from literary agents in NYC and LA for the top three in each category, we're looking forward to another great Bash. We have confirmed Sara Gruen (Water for Elephants) and Holly Black (Spiderwick Chronicles) as judges.
