About the contest

Thinking of participating in NaNoWriMo 2015? We have good news for you! Even if you don't complete the entire challenge, your story can still win on Inkitt!

We think it's better to write half of a good book in a month than to finish something you may not be happy with in the same amount of time. We encourage you to submit your novel chapter by chapter throughout the contest so that you can get feedback while you work! Learn more about Nanowrimo here

Stories in the top 10%, based on "most popular" and "most visited", get the opportunity win special promotions and awesome badges - even if they are not finished by the end of the month.
