Romance Writing Contest: From the Outside In

A Boroughs Publishing Group Romance Writers’ Contest

Who’s sexier than the rule-breaker, the bad boy, the charismatic leader of the rebel faction? What’s more satisfying than exerting your individuality against those who follow society’s most mindless routines?

Whether Robin Hood or Belle, Christian Grey or Han Solo, whether Neo or Zsadist, each of these characters act in contrast to a society, showing the natural conflict between us and our communities, and it’s through that conflict that communities – and people – change for the better.

This contest celebrates all who are different – and those who might learn to love them. Bring us your exiles, your pariahs, your good-at-heart criminals. Bring us your bluestockings and your hoydens, your smugglers and your rakes. Then show us how the world is better for having them – and how two lovers are better for having each other.
