There will be three rounds where you'll be challenged to reach word count milestones.

Round 1 - 2,000 word milestone

Round 2 - 8,000 word milestone

Round 3 - 20,000 word milestone


The writing period will last a total of 12 weeks, from 1st January 2019 to 26th March 2019. This gives you loads of time to write, revise, edit and rewrite.

In each round (each with its own deadline) you will be judged on multiple aspects of your writing, and authors who meet both the word count milestone and cross the winning score threshold will move ahead to the next round.

The highest scoring author in each round will receive an e-book bundle, and everyone who reaches the word count milestone by the deadline will receive a special sticker of achievement, meaning there are prizes at every milestone!

Don't worry, those who don't commence to the next round will still receive an achievement sticker if they hit the word count milestone! You'll be recognised no matter if you move forward or not.

Full guidelines, including the contest schedule, prize line-up and submission details can be found in the Open Novella Contest II book on the OpenNovellaContest profile page.
