Colorado Gold Contest
For over thirty years, the Colorado Gold contest for unpublished writers has given aspiring novelists the chance to get their work in front of an aquiring agent or editor while also providing feedback and encouragement for the craft of writing.
Enter the first 20 pages of your manuscript and a 3 to 4 page synopsis in one of six categories (see below). Two judges from RMFW will evaluate and score each entry. The top five submissions scoring 130 points or more in each category will make the finals and will then be judged by an agent or editor who is attending the Colorado Gold Conference. One winner will be named in each category. Winners receive $100 and a certificate. The remaining finalists receive $30 and a certificate. Winners will be announced at the Colorado Gold Writers Conference awards banquet September 6th, 2014, at the Westin Hotel in Westminster, Colorado.
