Do you have what it takes to be Harlequin’s next top author? Then mark your calendar, because Harlequin’s popular conference and contest, So You Think You Can Write (SYTYCW), returns this September from the 17th to the 21st. This week-long conference is free, available online and culminates in a contest where the winner walks away with the prize of a Harlequin publishing contract.
What Is It Exactly? SYTYCW is a free virtual romance-writing “boot camp” that is open to everyone who wants to write a novel that will get noticed. And for the first time this year, the conference and contest is available to writers all around the world. SYTYCW offers aspiring romance authors the chance to get tips from over 50 Harlequin editors from their offices in New York, Toronto and London. Have a burning question about a specific line you’ve been dying to pitch? Now’s the time to get answers! Using social media, editors will be available via live chats, Twitter and in community discussions. They will also be sharing their industry know-how through podcasts, videos, webinars and blogs. Plus all this work will help you get ready to submit your manuscript into the So You Think You Can Write contest!
