Orna Ross Green Stories Novel Competition Entry Fee and Submission Criteria

Submission fee: $0



Before any submission, entrants must show they have read at least one chapter from successfully published pieces from the Green Stories project that provide an example of entertaining mainstream fiction that meets the criteria of showing green solutions (not just problems) that readers can engage with. 

This year the book is Habitat Man (publication date Sept 2021), an eco-themed rom-com written specifically for the green stories project. Green Stories will provide one chapter free to download or you can buy the whole book if you prefer. The submission survey (link available 2 months before the deadline) will include a short easy quiz to demonstrate that you’ve read the extract.

This is to reduce the stress and burden of reading submissions that didn't meet the criteria

Length

Typically novels are 70,000 – 100,000 words. 

Submit three chapters (minimum of 4000 words, maximum 10,000 words) as one document that must include the following:

  • the first chapter
  • another chapter that best showcases how your novel meets the green stories criteria
  • a third chapter (suggest the final chapter if possible)
  • a synopsis between 500 and 1000 words (name and contact details optional – we can identify via submission page) that covers genre, plot, characters, and details of how it meets the green stories criteria of showcasing positive visions of a more sustainable society or incorporating green solutions into the context of an otherwise mainstream story.  
You can submit more than three chapters if you need to, in order to make up to 4,000 words.  If you get to the short list, we may then ask for more chapters or the full novel from the best entries to help us decide.

Eligibility

Open to all adults (18+) of any nationality, as long as the submission is in English and has not been published elsewhere.

All submissions must conform to the green stories criteria of showcasing positive visions of a more sustainable society or incorporating green solutions into the context of an otherwise mainstream story.  


The competition is open to novels that are either:
 
–          Partially complete (at least 50%) in the first draft phase
–          Fully complete and unpublished (between 70,000 and 100,000 words).

Submission details and link will be provided two months before the deadline



Judging Criteria

Entries must conform to the green stories criteria of showing a positive vision of what a sustainable society might look like or include green solutions/policies/characters in the context of an otherwise mainstream story. 

It does NOT have to have an explicitly green theme, as green solutions can be smuggled in quite subtly - see their full competition guidelines.
