[WRITING] [CONTEST] Gather/Amazon Shorts competition

We're thrilled to launch our newest Gather.com writing competition in which unpublished authors can compete for the opportunity to have their work featured and sold on Amazon.com through the Amazon Shorts program.

Introduced last summer, Amazon Shorts offers an entirely new way for customers to enjoy their favorite authors and to sample the work of new authors through exclusive short-form literature, sold on Amazon for $0.49 each. Amazon Shorts have no printed editions and are delivered digitally.

Starting today, Gather.com will offer a first of its kind opportunity for non-published authors to participate in Amazon Shorts alongside bestselling authors like James Lee Burke and Jacquelyn Mitchard.

Today through Saturday, September 30, Gather members can submit 2,000- to 10,000-word original entries. Each month, the three highest-rated entries, along with a fourth entry selected by the Gather Editorial Team, will have the opportunity to be sold on Amazon.com!

How It Works:


One month's gone. Only two more to go ... Because you can only submit one entry per period and you can't submit in two consecutive periods, you have one ONE chance to submit something between now and the end of September.

Have at it.
