I Publish Press Invites Authors to Enter Writing Competition; 12 Works to Launch Publishing Service
Newcastle, ON (PRWEB) September 27, 2006
I Publish Press is inviting writers to enter its inaugural Fiction Writing Competition. Every entry will be individually considered for publication by I Publish Press. Winning manuscripts will launch the I Publish Press website and will be prominently featured and available for sale to the public. Original works of fiction written in English with a length of 60,000-120,000 words are eligible for submission through I Publish Press (http://www.ipublishpress.com/competition.php). The competition closes December 15, 2006.
“We want twelve great new books to showcase to all those eager readers out there,” says Michelle Noël, Editor and Co-Publisher of I Publish Press. “We think the way the conventional publication process works many talented authors are overlooked. We want to change that. After all, many of the greatest novelists had difficulties with traditional publishing. The Brontë sisters, Virginia Woolf, and James Joyce all published through unconventional means at one time or another.”
I Publish Press is taking advantage of the latest in publishing technology and innovative marketing channels to create a fresh and progressive publication process. Conventional vanity presses, because they publish everything, can’t assure readers a minimum level of quality. At the same time, big traditional houses bank on publishing known authors, and smaller presses find it difficult to take risks.
“It can be frustrating for new authors trying to get their manuscript looked at by a publisher,” says Linda Noël, Director and Co-Publisher of I Publish Press. “After all the work that went into writing their book, they now have to find an agent or publisher who will look at a synopsis and solicit their manuscript. Then they have to wait with their fingers crossed, hoping a miracle will happen. Here’s a chance for them to get their manuscript over the transom.”
The competition will be judged by the Publishers of I Publish Press. Winning entries must conform to editorial standards for published works, and submissions will be judged on originality, quality of writing, readiness for publication, and literary merit. Winners will be informed by January 15, 2007 and will be featured on I Publish Press websites in the week following.
