Do you have a great opening? Are your first pages polished to perfection? Are you an unpublished Romance Writers of Australia member?
Then we have a competition for you!
The Ripping Start competition is a new RWA competition which is all about giving your novel (or novella, more on that below) an unputdownable start.
To enter you will need the first 1,500 words of your novel or novella and a 300 word synopsis of your story. (For the purposes of this competition, novel or novella is defined as a work of fiction 10,000 words or more.)
The final judge will be agent Clare Forster from Curtis Brown Australia. (Thank you Clare!)
The Ripping Start competition is now open for entries. The window for entering closes at midnight, EST September 6, 2013, but there is also a cap of 90 entries, so if you would like to be in it, don’t delay! Shine up those words and enter!
For full entry details, including links to the entry form and sample score sheet, visit the Ripping Start page on our sparkling, new RWA website. If you are not yet a member, but would like to be, you can also join on the website. (Or if you would just like to have a look around and see what we get up to, you can do that from our home page.)
Good luck and get entering!
