A moment of truth? In a writer’s life cycle, getting discovered by a renowned publisher / literary agent / professional writer can be game changing. However, in a large pool of talented writers, seldom does fame come easy. However, every time you participate in a writing contest you are getting your work in front of a panel of judges. Many of whom are authors, editors, literary agents and publishers. These are the people who can potentially help you build yourself up in the future as a poet or creative writer. The more professional people from the literary world you get your writing in front of, the more likely you are going to get your writing discovered.
The SECOND SEASON has already begun and the jury at India’s Next Big Writer is on an eager lookout for fresh, new talent. To participate, click here.
