World's Best Story Social Contest Invites Writers

World’s Best Story, a social contest to reward writers and readers, is looking for the next big blockbuster story.

Aspiring authors will be reviewed and voted on by a community of readers, and ultimately, hand-selected by a panel of best-selling authors.

The grand prize winner will have his or her title published by FastPencil Premiere, an author imprint service.

World’s Best Story is claimed to be the first social contest where the story and its blockbuster potential is the star attraction. The six-month-long contest aims to find a manuscript that has the potential to be a smash hit in books and beyond – from movies, to video games, to graphic novels, to merchandise.

Aspiring authors in top-grossing genres will enter their blockbuster story concept and sample chapter for the community to review and help select ten finalists and grand prize winner.

“This is not just a literary contest, we’re looking for stories that will be consumed in multiple media formats – from books to the big screen and beyond,” said Vincent Salera, founder and CEO of World’s Best Story.

Writers can enter by visiting or logging onto FastPencil, and uploading their title, cover, blockbuster concept and sample chapter.

Only contestants that have uploaded a full manuscript to FastPencil will be eligible for the final round of professional voting by a panel of authors and the grand prize.
