Golden Rose Contest
The Golden Rose is a contest sponsored by RCRW for unpublished and non-PAN (within the RWA Organization) authors. It offers the opportunity to obtain high quality feedback and, for finalists, the chance to get your work in front of a publishing industry editor or agent. It is one of the few contests allowing a high word submission count which provides our entrants the greatest opportunity for feedback. In addition, many of our finalists receive requests from the final judges and many of those have gone on to be represented by the agents or published by editors.
The 2013 Golden Rose is now open for entries! Early bird rates apply until June 30!
