New Critique Contest

It’s been a few months since I offered a critique contest and I’ve had many requests for a new one.  Since I love my followers, here you go!
I will critique (free of charge) any 1000 words of choice for four lucky winners. The rules are simple:
1.       You must add yourself as a follower of this blog if you are not already.
2.      Leave a comment telling me you want to be entered.
3.      Earn extra entries by posting an announcement/link to this contest on your own website, blog, twitter, facebook etc. and leave me a link in the comments below = one entry for EACH announcement/link.
4.      Check back on March 17 to see if you’ve won.
Isn’t that easy? Thank you for your support and I look forward to reading your work. Good luck and Happy Writing!

I'd love to enter! I've been so busy drawing, that I've temporarily neglected my writing.
This contest will be a good motivator~

Kari Marie said...

What genres will you read? Or more importantly what are you NOT interested in critiquing?

Sylvia Ney said...

Kari - I'm glad you asked. I'm open to anything. Whatever 1,000 words you choose.

Thanks for the opportunity again Sylvia! I tweeted it and I'll put it on my blog on my next post on Friday. http://twitter.com/#!/AimeeBea815

Hi - I'm a GFC follower and I tweeted.

Awesome contest.

Sylvia Ney said...

OK...I give...old school here...What does GFC mean?

Crystal said...

I would like a critique please. I'll Tweet.

Kari Marie said...

Google Friend Connect. Sorry! I should know better, it took me two days to figure out what that meant the first time I saw it.

Hi, I would love to enter. Just a question, if you are lucky enough to win, is the critique private? i.e not posted publicly. Thanks! ;-)

Sylvia Ney said...

Talei - This contest has ended, and the winners were announced in my March 17th post. However, you are more than welcome to enter the next one (maybe in May). The critiques are confidential. You email them to me and I email you the critique. No one else sees the work you send me.
