Annoucing the Fab Five contest hosted by the Wisconsin Romance Writers of America chapter.  I’m pleased to be judging again this year. Details are below. Looks like a great list of final judges. Good luck!

***Permission to forward granted, encouraged and appreciated***

The Wisconsin Romance Writers of America Fabulous Five contest is open for entries!

For over twenty years, we’ve provided detailed critiques to all entrants and an opportunity for the top five in each category to get their work in front of key editors and agents in the publishing industry. This contest is available to writers unpublished in book-length romance fiction during the past five years. 

Our final-round judges requested eight partial and eight full manuscripts last year alone! And our fees continue to be among the lowest for contests of this type – just $18 for WisRWA members and $20 for all other entrants.

All entries must be limited to the first 2,500 words of your manuscript and must be submitted electronically. For an entry form and complete details regarding rules and eligibility, click the Contests link on our website: http://www.wisrwa.org/

Deadline for entries is 11:59 CST, March 1, 2013. Categories will be capped at thirty-five entries each, so enter early to beat the rush!
