The non-profit San Francisco Writers Conference and San Francisco Writers University announced they are partnering with indie book publishing leader Author Solutions, Inc., and its integrated author marketing division, AuthorHive, to launch the Indie Publishing Contest for writers.It’ll cost you $35 to enter, though, in one of three categories: fiction, non-fiction, and children’s. Or, if your book is poetry, It’s $25.
The winners in each of the four categories can choose between a one-hour consultation with an agent or a free publishing package from an Author Solutions Imprint, plus publicity. If you’re the Grand Prize winner, you receive an indie publishing contract. It doesn’t include money, but you can link over to see the other things it does include.
