Are you an RWA member who is unpublished or under published?

The Golden Rose Contest is sponsored by the Rose City Romance Writers chapter of the Romance Writers of America.
Unpublished or under published RWA members can submit the first 10,000 words of a romance novel.

This is an excellent way to prepare for the RWA Golden Heart contest. Unlike the Golden Heart, you can receive detailed feedback on what the judges liked or did not like. The final judges are editors and agents. In past contests, they have often requested a full or partial of the manuscript.

The Golden Rose contest opens March 15. Enter in the first two weeks and take advantage of the Early Bird special price!
