Annual TARA Contest

The TARA contest is open for manuscripts not yet published in any format to all unpublished and published authors.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.

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.

So, get ready for the 2017 TARA Contest by polishing the fist pages of your manuscript(s) for an opportunity to get your writing in front of our awesome line up of final editor judges!

The 2017 TARA Contest opens for entries 12:01 AM EDT, April 1, 2017.
