The Sandy Writing Contest

The Crested Butte Writers has a yearly writing contest with several categories, including children’s.

Here is info from their site:

The Sandy is a competitive contest for unpublished and published writers alike to provide aspiring authors the opportunity to gain feedback from experienced writers, to give them the opportunity to get their work in front of industry professionals in their genre, and to provide them the opportunity for recognition for those who have honed their storytelling skills.

It was named after two wonderful Crested Butte women, Sandy Cortner and Sandy Fails, who have spent decades writing, promoting, and nurturing writers in the Crested Butte area.

All entries are electronic, due by Feb 10, and capped at 250, so enter early.

Here are the categories and the judges of the finalists:

  • Romance – Katherine Pelz, Assistant Editor Berkley
  • Mainstream Adult Fiction – Millicent Bennett, Senior Editor Free Press (Simon & Schuster)
  • Suspense / Thriller / Mystery – Carlie Webber, Agent at Jane Rotrosen Literary
  • Fantasy / Science Fiction – Amanda Ng, Assistant Editor Berkley
  • Children’s & YA – Christian Trimmer, Senior Editor Disney Hyperion
