2014 Frasier Contest

Judges: First round judges are current “therapists” with My Book Therapy and/or currently published authors. They will judge the manuscript based on the elements taught by My Book Therapy (See FAQ: score-sheets), on a number/rating basis; each ms will be judged twice, by different judges. The top ten percent of entrants will then be sent to the second round judges, and judged on hook, craft and voice. Entries will be judged, but not edited. All entries are anonymous to the judges. Entrants will receive feedback on the judging feedback form – line edit feedback is optional.


Amy Writing Awards

To be eligible, submitted articles must be published in a secular, non-religious publication (either printed or online) and must be reinforced with at least one passage of scripture.
