Cash Prizes up to $7.500 in fresh.ink Writing Competition

Ahead of its software launching, fresh.ink is hosting a writing competition in 4 fiction categories: Short-story, novelette, novella, and novel. This competition is a way for fresh.ink to launch its service and allow authors to try it out while still in beta mode. The main target of this software is to connect authors with readers to get ratings, engagement analytics, and early feedback on their fiction works.

Writers from around the world may apply, but they must be 18 years or older, and own the rights to the work they are submitting.

  2. Writers can submit as many times as they like, as long as each submission is a distinct piece of work.

  2. Novelette winner gets $1.500.

About fresh.ink:

fresh.ink was launched in 2019 with the dream of supporting authors at all stages of their writing careers. In its first phase, fresh.ink is a platform that helps authors get feedback on their writing by connecting them to beta readers. This is regarded as an important last step before sending work off to agents and publishers. The next phase is to launch fresh.ink premium, a digital collection of some of the best works, every author included in its premium library is paid, either with pre-payment upfront (in cases of buying reprint rights to already published work), or by profit-sharing based on page views (in cases where the work passed through fresh.ink). In both cases authors won’t have to pay any expenses.
