This contest is open only to the conference attendees and will be judged by editors and agents attending the conference.
In case you were on the fence about entering, or you thought you need just a few more days to polish your ms, here's your chance! We're extending the deadline for entries to Friday, February 7th. You have an extra week to perfect your synopsis, polish those 10 pages, and make them shine!
Entry information can be found on the Desert Rose website
Do let me know if you have any questions!
There's been some confusion about genres for the Realizing the Dream contest…for that, I apologize. To be clear, please note the following:
Entries are NOT judged within genres. All entries are judged together.
There is no set list of genres. The genre you specify is how YOU would classify your book.
The genre is required for the judges, so when reading your entry, they have the appropriate expectations.
The online entry form asks for "Category Entered." In this field, please specify the genre (in fact, this field should have been labeled "Genre"
If you have any questions, please direct them to me, not other members of the conference team. I will happily assist you in any way I can.
