Do you enjoy reading romance novels?
Romance Writers of New Zealand (RWNZ) is looking for READERS ONLY to judge the KORU Contest entries. That means you can’t also be an author.
The Koru is the RWNZ Published Authors contest for full Books (40,000 to 100,000 words) or novellas (25,000 to 40,000). Only New Zealand and Australian authors can enter this contest but their books are published worldwide.
If you enjoy reading romance novels across all genres, and are happy to judge in the Koru Award then please sign up. You will be expected to judge a minimum of 3 books within a 90 day period, you can read more if you want.
You will receive the books in PDF format that can be converted and sent to your eReading device. Be aware that the formatting may be altered by the conversion and no marks should be deducted for this.
