  • The contest will open this Tuesday, November 10, at 9 p.m. Eastern Standard Time. (That's 6 p.m. Pacific Standard Time.)
  • You will need to submit the following: Your first five pages AND a single-spaced one-page synopsis.
  • A free membership on the QueryTracker main site is required.
  • Submissions will be accepted through the official form on the QT main site ONLY.
  • Only one entry per person will be accepted.
