Romance writers: Win a three-book contract with HarperImpulse

The lovely people at Hamper Impulse, the romance imprint of HarperCollins, have announced a Christmas themed competition for budding writers with the amazing prize being a three-book contract with HarperImpulse and afternoon tea at Fortnum and Mason in London!

So dust off your Christmas playlist, make yourself a nice cup of hot cocoa and imagine yourself in a magical winter wonderland as you write down your best seasonal story to submit for the following competition:


The sun may be shining outside but here at Harper Impulse we’re thinking about Christmas time... and launching our wonderful WINTER WONDERLAND competition.

We're looking for novels of any length, which have a Christmas, Hanukkah or New Year theme in them (and, of course, some kind of romance!). We’re open to all kinds of stories from people of all backgrounds anywhere around the world - if you’re not sure if your plot fits the competition, please get in touch on Twitter or Facebook.

The prize is a three-book contract with HarperImpulse and afternoon tea at Fortnum and Mason in London. If you are unable to make the afternoon tea (we know that a lot of our readers and writers are overseas!), a hamper of wonderful Fortnum and Mason treats will be sent to you, wherever you are in the world.

The closing date for entries is 16th October 2013. Please send all entries to and add 'Christmas submission' to the e-mail subject header.

You can submit more than one story and submit more than once. Please also include a brief covering note about yourself and the submission.

Submission guidelines and other FAQ, including information about royalties and formats can be found here.

We can't wait to read your stories! Good luck!
