Winners up to the 25th place will be compensated financially, but first place can take home $3,000, national exposure from Writer’s Digest magazine, and paid travel for the Writer’s Digest Conference. All entrants will be given the opportunity to attend a webinar hosted by award-winning author Jacob Appel.

Winning manuscripts are scheduled to publish in May 2015, with early orders being shipped in June. Stories will appear in the July/August edition of the magazine.
