Annual TARA Contest

The 2018 TARA Contest is closed for entries.

In memory of Anne-Marie Carroll

November 26, 1958 – April 14, 2018


The TARA contest accepts manuscripts not yet published in any format from unpublished and published authors. The author does not have to be a member of Romance Writers of America. The categories offered for entries are Series Contemporary, Inspirational, Historical, Romantic Suspense, Single Title, Women’s Fiction, and Paranormal. CLICK HERE for full details.

Trained, experienced, published and PRO authors judge each entry. The TARA Contest is one of few which offer invaluable feedback from not one, but two judges’ comments within the manuscript and from our detailed scoring system. Actively acquiring editors receive the top three finalists in each category.
