Contest: The golden claddagh - deadline for entries is may 5th
*** Permission to Forward ***
Announcing CHRW's Golden Claddagh Contest for Full-Length Romantic Fiction
The Contest where non-finalists are winners, too. See below!
THE GOLDEN CLADDAGH
(Don't let our chapter name dissuade you-- your entry does not have to be Celtic in nature.)
The top three finalists in each category will be considered by top editors and agents, but non-finalists are winners, too! The 4th, 5th, and 6th place winners in each of our unpublished categories will receive a full critique by a multi-published author! Additionally, all first-place finalists will also have a chance to win the GOLD CLADDAGH, which will be the first-place overall contest winner. That category will be judged by Kevan Lyon (of Marsal-Lyon Literary Agency) and Liz Pelletier (of Entangled Publishing), and the final winner will receive a Gold Claddagh pin, as well as additional consideration by the two judges.
We have six categories for unpublished authors, and one category for published authors (NEW!). Here are the categories and final judges:
FF&P – Angela James (Carina Press)
Celtic – Laurie McLean (Larsen-Pomada Agency)
Erotic - Katherine Pelz (Berkley)
Historical – Laura Bradford (Laura Bradford Agency)
Romantic Suspense – Suzie Townsend (Nancy Coffey Agency)
Contemporary – Aubrey Poole (Sourcebooks)
Published – Amy Pierpont (Grand Central) & Becky Vintner (FinePrint Literary Agency)
Entries are $15 for CHRW members and $20 for non-members and will be received between April 1st and May 5th! For full information, entry forms, and eligibility information, please see our contest announcement: http://celtichearts.blogspot.com/201...-claddagh.html
