North Street Book Prize Benefits and Offers New Categories

Dear SharingwithWriters Subscribers and Visitors, 

This is a first! Since I started this blog in the early 2000s, I have never sent a sponsored mailing like this to you. I am doing it now because I have relied on Adan Cohen and Jendi Reiter at WinningWriters.com for contest ideas for years. They also sponsor their own contests such as the North Street Book Prizefor self-published books, which I am proud to cosponsor. This year, Winning Writers has added two new categories—Poetry and Children's Picture Book—in addition to Mainstream/Literary Fiction, Genre Fiction, and Creative Nonfiction & Memoir. The top winners receive cash awards plus marketing help from me, and everyone who enters receives a digital copy of my book, The Frugal Book Promoter. Get ready, set, go!
