Enter the FabFive Contest for Unpublished and Self-Published Authors

The Wisconsin Romance Writers of America’s 2015 FabFive contest submission deadline is closing in. All submissions must be received by March 1, 2015 at 11:59 PM CST.

Some of our categories have low entry counts this year.  That makes your odds of becoming a finalist and getting your work in front of our final round judges better than ever in this highly-popular contest.

Eligibility and Entry. Fab Five is available to writers unpublished in book-length romance fiction.  Self-published authors may also apply.  Your entry must be limited to the first 2,500 words of your manuscript and must be submitted electronically.  For an entry form and complete details regarding rules and eligibility, click the Contests link on our website: http://www.wisrwa.org/

Grab this opportunity for a critique of your work and the chance one of our final round judges may ask to see more of it.

The FabFive Contest fees continue to be among the lowest for contests of this type – just $18 for WisRWA members and $25 for all other entrants.

Deadline for entries is 11:59 CST, March 1, 2015.  Categories are limited to thirty-five submissions each.
