View Full Version : Are there any fiction contests that will read the entire manuscript?

I've searched till glassy-eyed for fiction contests that will read the entire manuscript. Mine is 80 thousand words, if that helps clarify what I'm seeking. What always happens is that after enough clicks or enough reading the contest reveals itself to be for the first 30 pages or similar. Thanks in advance.

No, you're not likely to find a contest like that; it's too much to expect.

I've always thought that a manuscript good enough to place high in or even win a contest is one that could get you an agent or publisher. Why aim anywhere below the top?
