The Grace Notes Foundation's mission is to nourish new talent, reward excellence, and help writers achieve their dreams by giving them the tools to grow within their craft through feedback on both a peer and professional level, community, resource links, writing related classifieds, scam warnings, market research, and a number of other projects. We offer publishing opportunities through NOTES Magazine, Grace Notes Books, and affiliate publications who read all our winning entries and have often made publication offers not only to award winners but to general users.
We do not have genre restrictions at Grace Notes but we prefer works that seek to combine the art of "literary" writing with the craft of "popular writing". Works with a powerful sense of character, an edgy sense of humor, or a unique perspective will be most likely to grab our attention. We firmly believe that a unique style, a clever narrative voice, and creative execution can breathe new life into any theme and we never discourage submissions based ongenre.
This organization was founded by writers with the intention of creating a single source for most (if not yet all) the needs of aspiring writers as well as a social network for established writers.
