Vote Now for the Top 25!

With a dizzying number of entries across 18 eligible categories, the So You Think You Can Write Contest is off to a great start in 2015. The editors have had their chance to read all of your great pitches and first chapters, and we’ve narrowed the field. Now it’s your turn to read and vote!

Announcing that the Top 50 Voting Phase in the SYTYCW contest will now include the top 55 submissions!  The Top 55 are now available for public voting! See the Official Rules for details.

From now until 4:59 pm EDT (EST) Oct 14, 2015, you can place ONE VOTE per story for your favorite #SYTYCW15 entry.
