Genesis Contest

The ACFW Genesis Contest is for unpublished Christian fiction writers. With ten categories to enter, Genesis provides the opportunity for unbiased feedback on writers’ work by published authors and experienced judges, and the chance for finalists to have their work read by Christian publishing house editors and literary agents. ACFW is pleased to see many previous category winners and finalists move further in their writing careers and become published authors.

Please read all of the guidelines below before entering. Contest opens January 2, 2022 at 8:00am central, and closes on March 15, 2022 at 4:00pm central. All entries must be in by that time.
