Unpublished Judge Sign Up
We need Published Authors to volunteer to judge our Unpublished Maggie awards. You will receive a $5 discount off a Maggie entry for your efforts. As Published Authors, you have traversed the waters to publication and your expertise is greatly appreciated. As a gesture of our thanks, if you are willing to judge, you will get a special $5 off one Maggie Entry (One per judge). Please be aware failure to judge or return scores will result in disqualification of your own Published Maggie entry. In addition, as a gesture of our appreciation, two judges – who return scores and critiques on time – will be randomly selected to receive a $25 gift certificate.
Entries are no more than 10,000 words, double spaced, including a synopsis, however the synopsis is NOT judged.
You will receive entries (approximately 4 to 5 per judge) within 48 hours.
Scoring is due back by July 22, 2019.
Judges will critique their entries with constructive feedback based on their knowledge of the industry as Published Authors.
Names of our First-Round Judges will NOT be revealed to the entrants unless you request it.
