OKRWG is always seeking to evolve and grow for each and every one of our fabulous members. This year that evolving will include our contests. Unfortunately, our Cupid Awards just haven't made enough entries to sustain that program. It seems that you all aren't interested in writing and submitting to an unpublished short story contest, so we are doing away with that contest in 2024.
However, we still want our unpublished members to have a way to participate, so we've added an unpublished option to each heat level category of our Heart Awards contest! We think this will be much better received and cannot wait to recognize those winners alongside our published winners at the Heart Award Gala in August!
The 2024 Heart Awards will open to entries on January 1st! So if you had a book published in 2023, we'd love to see your entry, but even if you're still working on that novel, we've now got a category for you too!
We hope you are as excited about these changes as we are! And remember, the Heart Awards is THE fundraiser that supports ALL our OKRWG programs, so by entering you're supporting us and all we do FOR YOU!
