Seattle RWA Contest

on March 22, 2011

Another great contest to know about is the Seattle Romance Writers Association Annual Contest. This contest provides valable score sheets and feedback. The contest is for the opening of romance stories including young adult. Winners are announced at the Seattle Romance Writers Conference which takes place on October 28-30, 2011 at the Bellevue Westin Hotel.  (This is a great conference for anyone who is interested in writing romance).

The Emerald City Opener Contest sponsored by the Greater Seattle Chapter of RWA, will open for submissions starting April 1, 2011 .

Submit your polished (think sparkling) first seven pages of your manuscript to enter. Your novel’s opening hook – The Opener – is what attracts an editor and/or agent.

This contest is designed to help you perfect your opener to leave them grasping for more. Detailed score sheets will provide feedback and the judges are encouraged to add comments on your entry.

Judges will be: PRO members, published authors, or Golden Heart finalist/winners.

Information on entering the contest will be posted here.
