October 2020 - FictionFive Contest Results!

We are thrilled to announce the results of the October FictionFive Contest!

And the winner is… drum roll please…

Lola Sable’s Literary Fiction entry My Beloved Monster was the highest rated entry across all categories in the October FictionFive contest and wins the top prize, a $250 gift card!

Congratulations to all our finalists in each of the 5 fiction categories. The top 3 finalists in each category won feedback from one literary agent and one developmental editor (on top of bragging rights!). 

We are so proud of our finalists as more than 30% of them received requests for more pages from literary agents! Great job and best of luck on your querying journey! 

See the finalists below, as well as the honorable mentions in each category, which are the high-rated entries that ranked close to the finalists.

We continue to be amazed by the support and engagement of our users. It was the incredibly generous number of hours spent by our volunteer judges that made this contest possible. A big thank you to all our judges, agents and editors!

The participating literary agents were: Stephanie Winter, P.S. Literary Agency, Annie Bomke, Annie Bomke Literary Agency, Matt Belford, The Tobias Literary Agency, Danya Kukafka, Aevitas Creative Management, Duvall Osteen, Aragi Agency.

Save the date: our next contest is penciled in for March 2021!
