The Royal Ascot Contest

Announcing The Beau Monde’s  2014 Royal Ascot Contest

The Royal Ascot is the only RWA chapter contest for unpublished writers devoted exclusively to the Regency, broadly defined for the purpose of the contest as between 1780 and 1840 and set within the United Kingdom. The contest goal is to promote Regency romances by encouraging the development of authors who set stories in the Regency period. The Royal Ascot provides feedback from first round judges who know the Regency period. Each panel of first-round judges includes at least one author published in Regency romance. The final-round judges are acquiring editors and agents who love historicals. In the past three years we have had a total of 25 requests from final round judges.
