The Writing Cooperative launched The 52-Week Writing Challenge at the start of 2017, challenging writers on Medium to publish one story every week. We envisioned this as an effort to build a community of writers supporting and encouraging one another, and as a means of holding one another accountable. The Challenge took off, with hundreds of people participating.
Our generous friends at Standout Books are helping out by offering an amazing prize package to one lucky winner who successfully completes the challenge. The Standout Books E-book and Print Publishing Package, valued at $1,099, includes e-book cover design, print cover design, e-book conversion, print formatting, distribution, and more. It’s everything you need to convert your writing into a professional e-book and print book!
How to Enter
To be eligible, you must have published 52 separate entries this year. (Don’t forget that your first week may be your response to the initial Challenge post.)
To enter, you’ll need to complete the Google Form below and provide a list of your 52 entries. The easiest way is to create a Medium story or draft with an ongoing list, like Justin has done here or like Stella has done here. This Medium story may be published, unlisted, or a draft — as long as it contains 52 unique links and can be accessed by The Writing Cooperative admin team.
Entry forms must be submitted by midnight (Eastern time) on Sunday, January 7, 2018.
The winner’s name will be pulled from a random drawing of all eligible individuals. The winner will be notified by email and announced in The Writing Cooperative by January 14, 2018. Standout Books will send the winner a detailed form/questionnaire to get started on creating their e-book and print book!
