Cheerios® New Author Contest

Cheerios® is having a contest to search for the next great children’s book author. The contest is for new writers over the age of 18 living in the USA who have never been published before.

If you meet that criteria and have written (or are about to write) a terrific story for children ages 3 to 8, you might want to check out this contest. The Grand Prize is $5,000 and the winning story will be offered to Simon & Schuster, Inc. for possible future publication. The contest ends July 15, 2011.

You are not eligible to enter the contest if:
  • You are a professional writer, such as a novelist, magazine, blogger or newspaper writer who writes books or articles for pay (I'm assuming bloggers who don't get paid, are still eligible).
  • You have authored any work of fiction that has been published or is about to be published in exchange for payment.
There's plenty more fine-print, so hop on over to their website to see all the contest rules:

Good luck to those of you entering!

The story has to be 500 words are less. Mine is A LOT longer than that. Oh well. I guess I'm not going to be discovered this week.
