Avon Impulse has opened a novel contest for undergraduate and graduate college student romance writers:
Avon Books and Avon Impulse, imprints of HarperCollins Publishers, recognizes the raw talent and passion for the craft that many students bring to their work, and it is for this reason that they have chosen to work with HarperCollins’ Academic Marketing division to launch an initiative seeking emerging young stars of Romance.
Prizes: "Three (3) winners will each receive individual telephone consultations with Amanda Bergeron, editor, Avon Books and Tessa Woodward, editor, Avon Books, of approximately 30 minutes to be scheduled at a mutually convenient time by no later than September 30, 2014. In addition, all entries will be reviewed and considered for publication through Avon Impulse, Avon Books’ digital-first publishing group."
