WRITING COMPETITION: Alaska Break-Up Contest

If you’re looking for something new and fun to do…

Alaska Romance Writers of America presents

The Break-Up Contest

Are you looking for a different kind of contest?
A place to submit something other than your first pages or first chapter?
A chance to be read by both an actively acquiring E-Pub Editor AND a potential agent?


Spring in Alaska is a cause for celebration. When the sun finally starts to thaw the ice in our crystaline rivers and the snow on the tundra below our beautiful mountains — we go through what Alaskan’s call “break-up.” It is a long, often arduous, but ultimately beautiful process that leads to summer. It’s much like the relationship in a great romance novel.

We’re looking for your best break-up OR make-up scene: Up to ten pages of your manuscript’s most passionate argument, break-up or black moment – the moment that rocks your characters’ world and leaves your readers heartbroken. Or choose that wonderful scene when all is forgiven, your characters are in each others’ arms again and the HEA we read for is just
around the corner!
