“It’s incumbent upon Harlequin to seek out fresh voices,” said Loriana Sacilotto, executive VP, Global Editorial. 

“Talented writers can bring with them an exciting new perspective, contributing to the evolution of the genre. So You Think You Can Write is a wonderful opportunity for aspiring authors and Harlequin editors because you never know where you might find the next Nora Roberts, Susan Mallery, Heather Graham or Nalini Singh.”

Together with writing tips and tools, the event also offers aspiring authors virtual “face” time with 50 editors who may want to buy their books.

According to the company, it includes community discussions with USA TODAY bestselling authors, live chat with editors in the Harlequin community, podcasts with editors and authors, webinars with editors, daily challenges to test writing skills and a special in-box for unpublished writers to submit their manuscripts directly to Harlequin editors.
