Be a contest slut!

Hello gorgeous readers!

August 1st: 2011 Where the Magic Begins Contest. Sponsored by Romance Writer’s Ink. First 25 pages of your manuscript, plus a one-page, single spaced, unjudged synopsis. Final judges are editors!!! Check it out: www.rwimagiccontests.wordpress.com

August 15th: 2011 Golden Palm Contest. Sponsored by Florida Romance Writers. First 25 pages. Final judges are editors and agents!!! Go to: www.frwriters.org

All these look like great opportunities to get some feedback, improve your craft, and GET YOUR WORK NOTICED! So go! Win!!!

And when you do, come right back here and tell me about it!

  1. Okay, I know you are speaking to me, Cecily. (sheepish grin…toes digging into the sand) You don’t have to twist my arm. I’ll pick one and go for it. In fact, I will post here as soon as I’ve hit the send button. 😀

  2. Hi Cecily,
    Your new wesbsite is awesome. As for contests…ah, not yet. I’m gearing up for the Golden Heart. I do want to send something out for feedback, but I haven’t decided which contest to go for. Thanks for the post on available contests. So helpful.

    Good luck with your new site.

    Hi, Lynda Gail–*waving from Missouri* So great to meet you at the conference last week. Hurry back.

  3. Thanks for the contest tips, Cecily. Like, Barb, I’m gearing up for the Golden Heart, right after I finish editing my book to send to the Harlequin editor who requested my story at RWA.

    Keep ’em coming!

    Good luck, LG!
