Futureword Publishing's New Picture Book Contest

Did you hear the good news? Futureword Publishing is having their 2nd Children's Picture Book Contest. It's open to published, unpublished, and self-published authors. All you have to do is enter!


If you happen to be the lucky winner, you'll receive a contract with Futureword Publishing which includes publication and the chance to work with the award winning illustrator, Valerie Bouthyette who will bring your book to life. But it doesn't end there! The 1st place winner will also win a $500 cash prize. The 2nd place winner will win $300 plus their story will be included in a book of short stories. The 3rd place winner will win $200 plus their story will be included in a book of short stories as well.

I have two books published by Futureword Publishing and a third on the way. I can honestly say that I am so happy Futureword gave me a chance and published me for the first time. They gave me all the encouragement and attention I needed as a new author.

So what are YOU waiting for? Get your story ready and submit by Feb. 9th and the entry fee will only be $35. If you enter after that, the fee is $45. Closing date for the contest is March 1, 2015.

  3. That is a great contest! You’re opening doors to many new writers for their story to be read, encourage more writers out there to write for more amazing stories, and win stuff at the same time. Thanks for sharing.
