Publication Contest

Publication Contest:

20 to 25 authors will be chosen for inclusion in a book titled, Whispers of Grace, published by Living Parables, an imprint of EABooks Publishing. This will make them “published” authors. Authors will be able to purchase books at a reduced rate and keep the profit from their sales.


  • Must be an unpublished author (can have articles, blogs, or online content published either paid or unpaid, but not a book for which royalties were paid.)

  • Must be registered for the full Maranatha Conference–not open to single day attendees.

  • Only those who follow the full submission guidelines will be considered:

    • Only one submission per person registered for the conference.

    • Can submit a short story, article, devotional, prayer, or poem.

    • 1,500 word limit.

    • Include a 50-word bio at the end of your submission, a title and your name with contact information (email, address, and phone number) at the top of the first page of the submission (none of this info is included in submission word count total.)

    • Standard manuscript format (Times New Roman, 12pt font, double-spaced, 1-inch margins, Microsoft Word doc or docx.)

    • Submissions must be submitted via email to by midnight September 11, 2020, and include MCWC in the subject line.


  • Those that best reflect the theme, Whispers of Grace, who meet submission guidelines and represent the best writing of a new author, will be chosen for inclusion in the book. Winners will be announced during the conference.
