workshop :: Contest Slut or Contest Courtesan- Puttin’ Out for Love or Money presented by —
Darcy Burke, a 2008 Golden Heart and Maggie Finalist, made writing historical romance a priority three years ago. She’s entered two novels in thirteen contests. One of those novels was a complete contest failure,while the other finaled four times, including one first place finish and two second places.
A four time finalist and first place winner of two contests, Kim Wollenburg enjoys all aspects of entering contests – the good, the bad and the ugly and believes contests are like life – with the ability to thrill, inspire and wound.
Jessica Davidson’s first novel – Seduced By Shadows which comes out in October from NAL Signet Eclipse under her pen name Jessa Slade – was the grand prize winner of the 2007 Golden Rose. Needless to say, she’s a big proponent of winning writing contests despite her talent for splitting contest judges down the middle – figuratively, not literally.
A 2007 and 2008 Golden Heart finalist, Kristina McMorris writes contemporary and historical women’s fiction. Since delving into fiction writing three years ago, she has won 1st place in nine national literary contests and placed in nine others.
