Thought I would share a link to the Great Beginnings Contest, which I submitted an entry to this very afternoon. Sponsored by the Utah Chapter of Romance Writers of America, this is a nice opportunity for both published and unpublished writers.
For a fee of $10, writers can submit up to the first 5 pages of their novel. The categories include: Contemporary, Historical, Mystery/Suspense, and Young Adult. Hurry over and check out all the details--the entry deadline is March 1st!
