Fiction From the Heartland 2022

The 2022 Fiction From the Heartland Contest opens for entries on August 1, 2022!

Although we won’t conduct a contest for 2021 we will be back in 2022 and look forward to receiving your entry. We welcome unpublished romance writers to submit the first 10,000 words of your book-length romance fiction and synopsis.

Entries will be judged by two experienced judges, one of which will be a published author. Every entry will receive a two-page critique sheet that reviews things like plot, character development, conflict, and the overall synopsis of your story as well as a one-page written critique from each of the judges.

Finalists will be judged by an industry agent AND editor.
