    Winning the RMFW Colorado Gold Contest helped me catch the attention of an editor who visited the conference and led to my first book contract.

The 2009 Colorado Gold Writing Contest is now OPEN. Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers’ annual fiction writing contest is officially open for entries. This is a professionally managed contest with a large stable of experienced, published and multi-published judges.

It also happens to be the contest that led to my first published novel, so I’m thrilled to pass the information on to you. The contest accepts the first twenty pages of your fiction manuscript in the categories of mainstream, mystery, romance, action/thriller and spec fic (science fiction, fantasy, horror).

And new this year, the contest will accept electronic as well as hard-copy submissions, so it’s easier on the contest budget.

Deadline is June 1, 2009.

The Final Round Judges are: Mystery – Charlotte Cook, Editor, Komenar Publishing Speculative Fiction – John Helfers, Editor, 5 Star Publishing Mainstream – Jenny Rappaport, Agent, Rappaport Agency Romance – Becca Stumpf, Agent, Prospect Agency Action/Thriller — To Be Announced

For more information, rules, and an official entry form, go to rmfw.org and click on the Writing Contest link. Enter early, and good luck!

Or if you have other questions about the contest, the conference or RMFW in general, feel free to leave a comment and I’ll be happy to answer any questions.  I’ve been an active member of RMFW for over ten years.
