How about something short and sweet?

Lets say, the best hook you can create in under 3000 characters - whether it be the prologue/intro to a story, or a single passage out of context that you're particularly proud of.  This might widen the number of submissions considerably, but if something doesn't catch your eye in the first three and a half words - then you've got a pretty good rubric for thinning out the herd.

Yes. I agree. Learning how to write hooks and blurbs, and synopses and the like is something all writers should seek to excel at.
