Part of our mission is to recognize and honor good writing. To that end we will be holding open competitions that will carry formidable rewards and prestige. Winners will find their writing careers transformed by their accomplishment, and many of the entrants may find success as well since entries will be before the eyes of literary agents and acquisition editors who will certainly jump on anything that seriously catches their fancy.
Currently we have great things cooking! Some insiders have even used the term Revolutionary.
Projects this big take lots of time to organize. At this point we can't let out much, it's all quite hush-hush. But we can tell you this much, if you promise not to tell anyone...
