1.

* 1. Thank you for your interest in being a judge for Clash of the Title’s upcoming Laurel Award! This award recognizes recently published Christian fiction and gives readers, such as yourself, a taste of what’s fresh on bookstore shelves.
Our only two requirements are 1. That you be in no way associated with the writing or publishing industry (writer, agent, publicists, editor, professional reviewer, etc) and 2. That you be well-versed in Christian fiction.
To help you decide whether or not you’d like to be part of this event, here is a short list of what you can expect during the judging process.
• You will receive no more than 10 excerpts, each from a different author. The excerpts will be the first two chapters of Christian novels. The genres will vary and could be anything from contemporary romance to time travel.
• You will receive the excerpts in Word Doc format via email, and will have over 8 weeks to read, judge, and return the excerpts to your COTT representative.
• The score sheets are simple, short, and allow you the opportunity to leave an anonymous note to the author.
• Judging for the Olympia will take place August-September 2012.

If you meet the two requirements above and would like to participate, please enter your name and email address below, and we'll be in touch!
