Need a reason to finally finish that story? Just write it!

Want a chance to get published in the easiest way possible? Beware of shortcuts!

Inkitt is currently holding a free novel writing contest on their app/website! “Technically”

*This post has been updated*

The Prize:

  • your novel will be published they will act as an unconventional agent and try to get your novel published by others and gain rights to it
  • Inkitt will invest a minimum of $6000 into marketing for your novel that’s not quite how agents are supposed to operate
  • Inkitt will provide a marketing team not the agent’s job
  • your novel will be on Amazon’s Top 100 list they would love to try and make it happen
  • professional editing not the agent’s job
  • professional book cover design not the agent’s job
  • 25% royalties according to some sources – conditions and fine print certainly apply

The Rules:

  • you can submit any genre of novel within the realm of fiction
  • you cannot submit fanfiction or short-story collections
  • the novel must be a minimum of 20,000 words
  • the author must own all rights to the work
  • multiple entries are allowed
  • it must be written in English
  • self-published books are accepted
  • your novel must be submitted electronically (no physical copies)

Extra Info:

  • there is no entry fee – it’s a free contest – enter at your own risk
  • you retain all rights to your stories while posted on Inkitt – unless you win and lose rights
  • the winner will be determined based on Inkitt’s reader engagement (so regular people/readers will judge you!) – what is this algorithm really?
