Press release from: PUBSLUSH Press

NEW YORK – PUBSLUSH Press, a full service, social publishing platform, has announced a nationwide writing competition. Targeting writers of any genre, PUBSLUSH is encouraging authors to submit their book ideas to be chosen to win an iPad 2 and a chance to be published. Writers simply submit the best ten pages and a summary of their manuscript at, through October 15th.

PUBSLUSH Press is a revolutionary publisher that utilizes the power of community support and social networking to select books to be published by connecting writers directly with their readers. Through a collaborative method, Slushers (registered users) review, share, and fund their favorite submissions. Upon reaching the required support level, PUBSLUSH will facilitate the complete publishing process, including editing, design, marketing, distribution, etc. Also, PUBSLUSH simultaneously acts as an agent, allowing editors at major publishers to easily browse the top submissions and extend deals to authors if they wish.

“The writing competition calls attention to this incredible new outlet for aspiring authors. Our mission is not only to discover new talent, but to give authors a lucrative publishing alternative somewhere between traditional and self publishing,” said Jesse Potash, founder of PUBSLUSH Press.

“In addition to giving a voice to undiscovered writers, we are committed to impacting literacy initiatives for children worldwide. And for every book we sell, we will donate a book to a child without access to literature,” added Potash.

The competition is free to enter and runs through October 15th. First, second and third place winners will receive an iPad 2. Additionally, all three winners will be featured prominently on the PUBSLUSH home page, and have a chance to get published if the required funding is achieved. Full details and contest rules can be found at

Inspired by the industry term, “the slush pile” (where unsolicited manuscripts are set aside), PUBSLUSH Press is a full service, publishing platform that utilizes social media to bring together writers and readers, providing an innovative forum for discovering new writing talent. Writers upload a sample of their work and Slushers (registered users) review, share, and fund their favorite submissions. Once the required funding is achieved, PUBSLUSH facilitates the complete publishing process – or a deal is a made with another publisher prior to that. Additionally, for every book sold through PUBSLUSH and its distribution partners, a book will be donated to support children’s literacy.
