Want to win an e-reader? Ever thought of writing a romance novel?

Romance novel competition

Now’s your chance to get started! To celebrate our new Mills & Boon collections, Wellington City Libraries is running a great new competition.

We’re looking for the best paragraph for a Mills and Boon romance which describes the first time the guy meets the girl (or the girl meets the guy).

The prize will be a basket of goodies including an e-reader  – the lucky winner will be able to download romances from our eLibrary, and pursue that wonderful pleasure of reading a steamy romance without anyone else knowing!

There are a few conditions for entering the competition:

  1. Paragraphs should be no more than 120 words
  2. Contestants must be over the age of 18 years
  3. Contestants must be current members of Wellington City Libraries
  4. Only one entry from each library card holder will be accepted
  5. Contestants accept that their entries may be posted online by Wellington City Libraries
  6. Wellington City Libraries and their families are not permitted to enter
  7. Prize-winners give their permission to Wellington City Libraries to display photos and/or publish names of winners
  8. The judges’ decision is final, and no correspondence will be entered into.

So get out that laptop, or sharpen your pencil, and get writing!

When you’ve polished off your romance novel paragraph, just complete this entry form.  Alternatively, you can drop your entry off at any library branch, or post it to Wellington City Libraries,  P.O Box 1992, Wellington 614o (attention: Libraries Admin Team).

We’re accepting entries until 5pm on 27 June 2011.
