James River Writers and Richmond magazine recognize the writing talents and entrepreneurial skills of indie authors by continuing The Best Self-Published Novel Contest, which we started in 2014. One first-prize winner will receive $500 and a ticket to the annual James River Writers Conference (worth $250). The winner is announced in a fall issue of Richmond magazine and in October at the conference. Press releases will also recognize the winner.
The contest is open now and closes February 28, 2019.
