The 2024 Crown Award will open July 1st!

The ACFW-VA Crown Award gives unpublished writers the opportunity to have those all-important first five pages of their Christian fiction manuscript evaluated by industry professionals.

The first round is judged entirely by multi-published authors. Entries advancing to the final round will be evaluated by top professionals in the Christian publishing industry—literary agents, editors, and influential book bloggers.

You do not need to be a member of ACFW National nor of the ACFW Virginia Chapter in order to participate.
