Call For Submissions: Talking Heads

Submissions are now open for your dialogue-rich excerpts. (In other words, mostly talking.)

  • You may submit a 250-word, dialogue-rich excerpt from your novel, whether it is a completed work or a work-in-progress (WIP).
  • You may include a BRIEF lead-in (that is, a sentence or two to set up the scene).
  • The submission window will open at 4:00 PM EST today, and will close at 4:00 PM on Friday or when we have 10 entries--whichever comes first.
  • You may only submit one entry. Subsequent entries will be disqualified.
  • All entries will be posted anonymously.
  • By entering this critique round, you are giving implicit permission to have your work posted and publicly critiqued.
  • By entering this critique round, you agree to critique a minimum of 3 other entries.
  • Send your submission to A Writer Gone Mad at awritergonemad.submissions(at) (Replace the (at) with an @ sign.)
  • You will receive a reply email with your post number. Please be patient; unlike the critiques on Miss Snark's First Victim, this contest is NOT automated. Mad will be taking care of submissions by hand.
  • Format your entry EXACTLY AS FOLLOWS:

SCREEN NAME: (type it here) (this is whatever name you use when you leave comments here)
TITLE: (type it here)
GENRE: (type it here)

(type your first 250 words here)
