Royal Palm Literary Awards Deadline Approaching

RPLA Deadline May 15th

Have you ever entered a contest where two different judges provided detailed feedback on your work?

That's just one of the things that sets the Royal Palm Literary Awards (RPLA) apart from other writing contests. The fee that you pay is rewarded with feedback and sometimes with an actual award.

I had the privilege of winning First Place in the Unpublished Fantasy Novel category in 2011~ Bria Burton

The RPLA is an FWA benefit that has helped numerous members improve their writing and gain recognition. The RPLA Banquet takes place every year at the FWA Annual Conference, and it's an exciting and inspiring event.

Any genre you can imagine is accepted into the RPLA. From fiction to non-fiction, from flash fiction to short stories to novellas to novels to memoirs, there is a category for you where you'll be able to enter your work (both published and unpublished) and earn valuable feedback from the blind judging process.
