Harlequin So You Think You Can Write 2013 – It’s on like Donkey Kong!

A year ago today I entered a contest. It was a big one.

The Harlequin So You Think You Can Write contest. More than 700 writers uploaded their first chapters for the world to see. It was exhilarating and terrifying. And ultimately it was the launch pad for my writing career. 

Getting that email from ucanwrite@harlequin that said, “Congratulations!” was the second best moment of my career so far. The first was the call from Malle Vallik in Toronto with Harlequin e and a two book offer 🙂

The good news is YOU can enter the same contest. The most amazing thing this year is that you are GUARANTEED to have top Harlequin editors reading your first 5,000 words!

This is YOUR year. You have NOTHING TO LOSE and everything to gain.

You still have a few days to polish those manuscripts. And you’ll want to. If you are chosen as a Top 50 entry, the editors will request your full manuscript. Trust me. You don’t want the stress of trying to finish a manuscript under that sort of pressure.

The online conference begins next week. Be there.


Make it happen.

  1. If I wrote romance, I’d be all over this. I hope some of our Ozarks Romance Authors friends will take advantage of the opportunity.

  2. After growing the cajones to enter this, I think the hardest part would be writing the 100 word pitch. A hundred words?! How can we convey greatness within those limitations? And somehow I don’t think The Heckmasters fit neatly into Harlequin categories. I am, and have always been, just a little bit too weird. 😀

  3. I’m am so excited about this. Can’t wait. It’s my first year competing and I’m hoping for a very happy ending! Thanks for making this post!
