The Ella is approaching!


In 2013 Romance Writers of Australia introduced the Ella, the Romantic Novella of the Year Award, to acknowledge excellence in shorter length romance stories.

Romance Writers of Australia is pleased to invite all Australian and New Zealand authors of romance novellas to enter the 2014 Ella, our premier competition for authors of romance novellas.*

This year the Ella will be fully electronic. We are accepting emailed entries of romance novellas with a word count of 10K to 40K and published between 1st January 2013 and 31st December 2013.

The Ella opens on the 6th January 2014 with a closing date of 7th February 2014. Entry forms and guidelines can be found on our website at:

Members of Romance Writers of Australia are charged a lesser fee. Please contact Raewyn Bright, at if you are uncertain if your membership is still active.

If you have any queries at all, please email me at the address below. I look forward to receiving your entries and wish you good luck.

* Self-published novellas, or novellas printed by vanity publishers are not eligible for the Ella 2014. For further clarification, please email me at the address below.
