Far Side Contest for Unpublished Writers

2008 On the Far Side Contest - Sponsored by the Futuristic, Fantasy, and Paranormal chapter of Romance Writers of America

"Got fantasy, futuristic, or paranormal? Then the On the Far Side Contest is for you!!

Welcome dragons, witches, ghosties, vampires, shape shifters, unicorns, and any creature your imagination can conjure up in a galaxy far far away, in a time long past, or in your very own backyard.

2007 Contest: 3 manuscripts requested! Two sold so far!

The FF&P On the Far Side Contest is not to be missed. Not only did the judges provide detailed and actionable feedback that I used to make my manuscript better, but I sold as a result of my 2007 contest win! I highly recommend this contest to anyone seriously pursuing a career writing paranormal romance."
