First Page Challenge: The prize pool is growing

It's only July, and we have already hit 40 entries for the First Page Challenge. That means the first prize pool has filled and is now spilling over. Every additional entry from this point increases the pot! Here's how this works:

Up to 40 entries: $200 for 1st prize
At 60 entries: $200 for 1st prize, $100 for 2nd prize
At 70 entries: $200 for 1st, $100 for 2nd, $50 for 3rd
Above 70: 1st place continues to increase – no limit!

The First Page Challenge is a contest for writers who are shoulder-deep in a new manuscript. Hook us in a single page for a chance to win a growing prize pool, plus publication on the Chopping Blog.

Our judge, Michelle Barker, will be asking herself one question:
how likely am I to turn this page and keep reading?
