Colorado Gold Contest Prep


This episode is a live recording from workshop held Saturday, March 12 in Denver at the Ross Cherry Creek Branch Library.

The workshop was designed as a primer for the annual Colorado Gold Contest, which opens April 1.

The workshop was hosted by contest co-chair Pam Nowak and veteran contest winner Kevin Wolf.

This live recording runs just about an hour. As Pam makes clear, many questions about the contest and how it’s run are easily found under the "contest" tab elsewhere on website. On this recording, Pam and Kevin emphasize some key tips that should help you get your manuscript in contest-ready shape.
