Every once in a while, we writers (and readers) must tear ourselves away from the storied pages before us and turn our attention to what’s happening in the world around us—especially when it comes to literature! At Word Alive Press we like to keep an eye on book and writing news, and from now on, we will periodically be posting compilations of writing news—little tidbits about contests, new partnerships, awards, and conferences that you may have missed in your daily cruise through the news.
Here’s what’s happening in the world of writing this month:
Nov. 1—30: National Novel Writing Month! We’ve said it once, and we’ll say it again. Get those creative juices flowing and strike out on a novel new journey this month with thousands of other writers around the world.
Nov. 6: Canadian Children’s Literature Award winners have been announced! Check out these award-winning books for young people!
Nov. 6: Word Alive Press has just signed an agreement with Google Play to begin distributing eBooks through this popular vendor! One more great option for finding the latest in fine Christian literature!
Nov. 7: Word Alive Press and Women’s Journey of Faith are thrilled to launch the search for the next great female Christian author in Canada! One winning non-fiction manuscript will receive a royalty-based book publishing contract. A value of over $6,000!
Submit your manuscript today. Contest closes April 30, 2015.
Nov. 13—16: Check out the first annual Inspire! Toronto International Bookfair. This year’s lineup of speakers and events has been deemed particularly strong by bibliophiles across Canada. To anyone in Toronto this month, we hope you check it out!
