The new year is here and that means the 2017 Fabulous Five Contest is open for entries! If you’re unpublished or self-published, polish your first 2,500 words and enter today.
First round judges evaluate the entry on the Opening, Characterization, Plot, Dialogue, Setting, and Style. In its 26th year, our contest is known for giving good, thorough critiques no matter what level of the writing journey you are at. The top five finalists in each category move onto the final round where their work is ranked by one editor and one agent. Final rankings are averaged and the winner of each category receives a beautiful Silver Quill Award.
The categories this year include:
- Romantic Suspense
- Women’s Fiction
- Young Adult/New Adult
