Christian Book Publisher Launches 2nd Annual Writing Contest


Portland, OR. February, 2012 – Ellechor Publishing House, the publishing platform for Christian fiction and non-fiction literature, announces the start of its Annual Avant-Garde Writing Contest. Three winners will be selected and showcased at the 2012 Christian Literature Convention and Luncheon in Portland, OR. The Grand Prize winner will be flown to the convention and will receive a publishing contract courtesy of Ellechor Publishing House. Janice Rice, author of Acsah and the winner of the 2011 Avante-Garde Contest, will also be featured at this event.

The Avante-Garde Manuscript Contest is for unpublished fiction of a Christian and/or Inspirational nature. Avant-Garde represents a pushing of the boundaries of what is accepted as the norm or the status quo, primarily in the cultural realm. “This year we will be looking for the most innovative, thought provoking, and post-modern telling of a story in the Bible.” says Rochelle Carter, CEO of Ellechor. “It can be based on a short parable or a whole book in the Bible, but the challenge is to also remain as true to the story and its message as possible.”

From now until May’s end, writers from the all over the nation can submit their manuscripts online at and enter for a chance to begin their professional writing career, with the Grand Prize including a publishing contract with twenty to thirty-percent royalties. Entries must be an unpublished work by a single author and only one submission per contestant.
