Emerald Second Round

It’s busy contest time here at RWA!

The latest results we have to share are those clever writers who have made it to the second round in the Emerald and our brand-spanking new Emerald Pro contests.  Both of these are for complete manuscripts, but as a first step, the entrants submit a partial manuscript.  If their partial makes it past the eagle eyes of our judges, they then have five days to submit the full manuscript, which are in turn whittled down to a list of finalists.  All of these people below have made it over the first hurdle, so we need to congratulate them and wish them all the best for the next round!  And here they are:

Josephine Allen
JP Combe
Frances Dall’Alba
Lexi Greene
Georgia Henry
Jo Kelsey
Dianna Lennox
Kerrie Paterson
Sue Price
Joanne Robertson (x2)
Annabelle Rose
Lisa Stanbridge
PJ Vye
Emerald Pro:
Heidi Catherine
Morgan Cole
Tess LeSue
Well done to everyone who entered, and thanks as always to the contest manager, Marnie MacLean, and all our judges.
