The Golden Pen

Permission to forward

The Golden Network’s Golden Pen Contest is now open for entries!

What makes this contest special? Each entry in the Golden Pen will be judged by at least one published author and one Golden Heart finalist. What’s more, entries will be 55 pages. This is a chance to have a large portion of your manuscript evaluated. The format is similar to the Golden Heart, so this is a great contest to “test drive” your manuscript before entering the Golden Heart. Entries will be returned before the Golden Heart deadline.

The entry fee is only $30. For 55 pages, this is a great deal!

Categories and final round judges include:

Series Contemporary – Susan Litman, Harlequin
Single Title – Katherine Pelz, Berkley
Historical – Leis Pederson, Berkley
Paranormal – Deb Werksman, Sourcebooks
Romantic Suspense – Holly Blanck, St. Martins
Inspirational – Melissa Enlich, Steeple Hill
Young Adult – Regina Griffin, Egmont USA
Novel with Strong Romantic Elements – Valerie Gray, Mira
