Annual TARA Contest

The 2017 TARA Contest is closed. Start preparing your 2018 entry now!

The TARA contest accepts manuscripts not yet published in any format from unpublished and published authors.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.

So, polish the fist pages of your manuscript(s) in preparation for the 2018 TARA Contest!
