  • A private networking social will be held for all Golden Heart finalists, agents, and editors during conference.
  • One non-finalist Golden Heart entry in each category will be randomly selected to win a critique of their entry by an RWA Honor Roll author.​

So polish off your WIPs and submit your completed manuscripts!
