Write2Ignite! Presents Our First Contest…

The third annual Write2Ignite! conference was held on the beautiful campus of NGU on February 18-19th, 2011.  We were blessed and challenged by wonderful speakers and presenters.  We made new friends and rekindled old friendships.  We had a delightful time!
We were so honored to have Jenni Burke, literary agent with D. C. Jacobson & Associates, with us!  She led several workshops and met one-on-one with many of our attendees.  Jenni has donated our totally fabulous grand prize!

Drum roll, please…the winner of our contest will receive…
A Proposal Critique & Edit
$350.00 Value!
Jenni will read any fiction or nonfiction book proposal, including up to 3,000 words of the manuscript, deliver an in-depth written evaluation full of specific recommendations for improvement, and then answer your questions about publishing during a 30-minute  consultation call. Then, after you’ve made your improvements, Jenni will follow up with a final light edit of your book proposal.
If you were in attendance at Write2Ignite! you are eligible.  So polish up your book proposal and manuscript…or get started on one now…and submit!  Get those creative juices flowing and those fingers typing, folks.
