Selling Synopsis Results

Drumroll please!

The 2016 RWA Selling Synopsis competition results are in!  This competition asks entrants to produce a synopsis of their story as if you were submitting it to an agent or publisher.  It’s a much-dreaded task among writers, so entering alone is brave, but the people below have been judged to be not just brave, but skilled!

The 2016 Selling Synopsis placegetters, as judged by agent Courtney Miller-Callihan, are:

1st – Jo McAlister

2nd – Elizabeth King

3rd – Carla Ashburn

4th – Kat Colmer

5th – Sandra Hayward

6th – Carla Ashburn

7th – Bridie Smith

Congratulations to all our finalists, and to everyone who entered! Thanks to Courtney and all our judges and the new contest manager, Pauline Johnson, who’s done a fabulous job.
