A Special Note from the Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers Contest Chair

"Time is running out for the 2014 Colorado Gold Writing Contest.

There's about one week remaining to get the first twenty pages of your manuscript and a 3-4 page synopsis submitted to the Colorado Gold Writing Contest.

The deadline is June 1, 2014, though there’s a limit of 200 entries and the categories are filling up fast.

The Colorado Gold Writing Contest is for not-yet-published writers of commercial novel-length fiction. Agents or editors attending the Colorado Gold Writers Conference will select the winners. First prize is $100 and a certificate. The remaining finalists will receive $30 and a certificate.

All finalists earn bragging rights when placing in this highly competitive, well-respected contest. And there’s no better way to get feedback on your writing from experienced writers and possibly the agent or editor who's been looking for a book like yours.

It’s faster and easier than ever to enter. Go to and follow the steps to prepare and submit your entry.

Best of luck.

Chris Devlin
RMFW Contest Chair"

Thanks, Pat, for passing this along!

You, too, Alex. Hope the weather is a little nicer in your part of the country than it is here.

You're welcome, Margot. Colorado Gold is great opportunity for unpublished novelists to get feedback on their work. The finalists have something important to add to their accomplishments.

Hi Patricia .. these contests certainly give unpublished authors the opportunity to get feedback and see how others are doing ... the advice and thoughts coming out of a contest like this must be so helpful .. cheers Hilary

Best of luck to all the entrants. It feels good to no longer qualify to enter these!!! I looked forward to this day for years and years and years of entering contests and (mostly) losing.
