About Contest:
ChickLit Writers of the World RWA® Chapter 204 presents:
Get Your Stiletto in the Door Contest – Published Division

Has your manuscript been shredded in other RWA contests because it’s not quite romance? Do you write fun, sassy, contemporary fiction centering around the journey of the heroine? (Maybe you don’t even have a hero at all.) Do your manuscripts not play by the romance rules? Do you strongly believe that chick lit isn’t a flash in the pan? That, despite what the publishing houses may say, it’s hip, hot, happening and here to stay (even if it’s called something else)?

If any of the above apply, then this is the contest for you!
