The 2020 Contest (formerly the TARA Contest) is now closed

The judged entries are estimated to be returned to the entrants the first week of August. Thank you for entering the 2020 Contest.

Tampa Area Romance Authors (TARA) is no longer a chapter of Romance Writers of America (RWA) We are now the Florida West Coast Writers, Inc. Our non-profit corporation is open to all fiction novel writers.

Check this website for information about next year’s contest. FWCW will offer the same great feedback and obtain acquiring editors as final judges.
