At Writers After Dark, we love the promise of that first chapter. That first impression of the author and the enticement of the story to come.

If you’ve ever thought,
“If I could just get people to read my first chapter they’d be hooked,”
then this is your contest.


That first chapter is so important that we’ve launched our Chapter of Excellence Contest to award the best first chapter writers in their genre.

  • Platinum, Gold, and Silver Awards
  • A digital badge for winners in each genre
  • A Grand Prize of $250
  • Exclusive interviews on The Writers’ Podcast
  • A chance to win an author table at the 2018 Once Upon a Book Event

Entry is Simple & Affordable at only $15!!!

To join the contest just visit the entry page, fill out the short form, and upload your first chapter by October 31st, 2017.
