eHarmony and Trapeze Books have launched a competition to find a great love story and any type of romance is acceptable, for example gothic, speculative, dark etc.
First prize is a publishing contract with Trapeze worth £10,000 and mentoring from Trapeze author Anna Stuart. Shortlisted entries will receive books and a group mentoring session.
Judging the shortlist will be representatives from C&W Agency, Trapeze Books, eHarmony plus editor and journalist Sarah Shaffi.
Entrants should email the first 5,000 words of the novel plus synopsis and biography before the competition closing date of 30th July 2018. I couldn’t see anywhere that said the remainder of the novel had to be already complete – so that may be something the winner can work on after receiving the mentoring from Anna Stuart.
Even if you choose not to enter the competition. eHarmony provides some useful tips on writing a synopsis.
Don’t forget to read the full competition information before starting to craft your entry.
