Enter the Golden Pen Contest!
Here’s some exciting news from this year’s Golden Pen Contest Coordinator. If you are an aspiring romance writer, you should definitely enter this contest!
Ever wish you could bypass the slush pile and get your work straight to an editor’s desk?
The Golden Network is pleased to offer you just that chance. We’re lucky to have secured some of the industry’s most sought-after editors to judge a category in the final round of the Golden Pen contest:
Historical Deb Werksman, Sourcebooks Inc.
Inspirational Melissa Endlich, Steeple Hill
Novel with Strong Romantic Elements Valerie Gray, MIRA Books and SPICE Books
Paranormal Leis Pederson, Berkley Publishing Group
Romantic Suspense Holly Blanck, St. Martin’s Press
Series Contemporary Susan Litman, Harlequin Enterprises
Single Title Katherine Pelz, Berkley Publishing Group
Young Adult Regina Griffin, Egmont USA
By entering the Golden Pen, not only do you get the chance to make it to the final round (and earn a read from one of these top editors), but you also get constructive feedback from at least one published author and one Golden Heart finalist as part of the first-round competition.
The Golden Pen contest is open until August 15, but if you enter by July 15, you’ll get $5 off of your entry fee. If you register to judge the first round of the contest, you qualify for an additional $5 discount. So don’t delay–get your entry ready today!
