Mills & Boon New Voices

I'm interupting this discussion on Conflict (I'm glad so many of you are finsing it helpful) to tell you all about a brand new and exciting writing contest that is being organised by Mills & Boon, starting now and going on into the autumn, with the winner announced on November 1st

Mills & Boon New Voices
A global search for fresh writing talent to join
the Mills & Boon galaxy of romantic fiction stars

How the competition will work…
The competition will have its very own website - where the entries will be posted and readers can leave their feedback.

The competition will be divided up into four stages and will run from Monday 6th September.

The winner will be announced on Monday 1st November.

1. Stage 1: The Free for All;

- All submitted entries will be read and judged by the Mills & Boon judging panel

2. Stage 2: The Shortlist

- A shortlist of 8-10 authors will be announced, and their first chapters posted on the website.
- All shortlisted entrants will be assigned a Mills & Boon author and editor as a ‘mentor’ as they polish their second chapters and for their remaining time in the competition.
- The public will vote for their favourite!

3. Stage 3: The Shorter-list
- The shortlist will be chopped down to 4 – the next stage to share a ‘pivotal moment’ from their book.
- The public will vote for their favourite!

4. Stage 4: Winner!
- Judged by a panel – names TBC!
- The winner is announced!!

The Romance is not dead web site is now up and running and there is so much ionformation on there.

I will be running a workshop in connection with this contest in Doncaster library - the suggested date is currently August 26th but I will confirm that later.

Good luck
