0 Red Light/Green Light Contest OPENS THURSDAY

Red Light/Green Light officially opens on Thursday, June 23rd as of Noon EST/9am Pacific Time. The first 25 entries received during this window will be admitted into the contest. Our second submission window is 3pm EST/Noon Pacific Time, during which we will also accept the first 25 entries received, for a total of 50 first round competitors.

Don't forget, our grand prize is a FULL REQUEST WITH NOTES from our judging agent, Kelly Peterson of Corvisiero Literary Agency.

Entries time stamped before the first window's opening time will not qualify. Regrettably, neither will those sent after the 50 contest spaces fill up. You ARE permitted to enter during both submission windows, but please only submit once per window. Entries submitted twice within a submission window will be disqualified.

Red Light/Green Light is open to completed YA, NA, and MG manuscripts.
