PASIC: Another Notable Writing Contest
Why am I listing contests this week? Because these are opportunities to bring you and your writing to the attention of agents and/or editors.
Today's listing is about the contest sponsored by PASIC, the Published Authors Special Interest Chapter of Romance Writers of America.
Several years ago PASIC started a Book of Your Heart Contest, a place for those manuscripts that writers felt just had to be written even though they didn't meet marketability theories of major publishers.
The 2008 PASIC Book of Your Heart Contest is now open. It's for published or unpublished, and it may be the contest you've been waiting for.
