Lone Star Writing Competition 2015

Congratulations to our Lone Star Writing Competition 2014 Winners!

NWHRWA’s LONE STAR contest is regarded as one of the top contests in the industry, and has received numerous notes of praise. See what other writers had to say:

I am excited to let your chapter know that I signed with agent Sarah LaPolla of Curtis Brown, Ltd. I’m grateful for the feedback your contest judges provided last year which helped me fine-tune my manuscript for agents. I received two offers, both from excellent agents, but in the end chose Sarah because of her enthusiasm over my story. Thanks again for the encouragement your Lone Star contest provided. I’m so glad I can head to RWA Nationals this year on the way to becoming a published author.

I just wanted to say thank you again as I received my certificate today [FF&P finalist] and it’s gorgeous! This is truly lovely and I can’t wait to show my family. You’ve also been incredibly prompt! I also can’t wait to enter next year’s Lone Star contest (hopefully!) and can’t speak highly enough of your Chapter. Thank you for making this such an amazing experience! I’ll definitely be letting you guys know if I get published, and if it’s Halo, I’ll be putting a shout out to you and the NWH Chapter in the front! Hugs back and all the very best!
