Annoucing the Winners of the Haiku Writing Contest

Congratulations to the winners of this week’s writing contest! They are listed below.

But first, a bit about our contest series.

Every week we are going to have a contest on our Facebook Page. The contests will change from week to week but the winners will always be published in the magazine. The contest winner and the runners up are chosen by a voting system, and then the editors of Authors Publish will select several additional entries from the rest to be the Editor’s Choice winners.

Below are all the winners of this week’s contest, their challenge was to tell us, in 50 words or less, why they write. Lots of people gave thoughtful answers and it was hard to pick the Editor’s Choice.

If you want to read all of the entries and see the rest of the contest details, be sure to check out our Facebook Page.

The Details of The Next Contest:

The next contest will begin on Saturday March 15th at 2 pm. It will be posted on our Facebook page.

The goal of the next contest is to write the best one or two line pitch for your novel. Most agents want a pitch and it should be a simple phrase that you can say out loud, or convey through writing.

For example the successful one line pitch for my novel in progress was “The truth is out there, and it is our job to cover it up.” The agent agreed to read my manuscript based on this pitch.
