The Yosemite Romance Writers chapter of the Romance Writers of America proudly presents
Begun in 2010 with the first trophy awarded in February 2011, The Smooch writing contest is entering its fourth year. The contest has undergone transition as we settled upon a theme and learned the best methods for conducting a proper contest for romance writers. Our process is documented, and the winning entries can be read, on the pages dedicated to each year. (dropdown menu above and links below)
Winners of The Smooch
2013 ~ Sheri Humphreys
2012 ~ John Conway
2011 ~ Christina Gulke
Final decisions for The Smooch 2014 are pending, but will be announced by late-summer to early-autumn 2013. Be on the lookout for notices via RWA loops, the RWR, and of course on this page. In the mean time, keep writing and polishing your “first kiss scene” so you too can win a fabulous trophy!
