For anyone interested, the open submission period for WRiTE CLUB is open NOW until April 14th. This is the contest where you submit a writing sample (500-word max) under a pen name, if it's picked by a group of fifteen judges it gets to compete in daily bouts against other anonymous writers. The two contestants who make it to the final round have their work looked at by a panel of celebrity judges (agents, editors, famous authors, etc.) -- and the winner wins free admission to the DFW Writers Conference in Dallas.
