The Elizabeth Goudge Trophy
The RNA’s Elizabeth Goudge Trophy is awarded every year at the RNA Conference for the best opening chapter of an unpublished novel or short story, on a theme set by the judges. Both published and unpublished authors may enter their work for this award.
The Entry Process
The Elizabeth Goudge Prize is open to all RNA members attending the annual conference, whether published or unpublished. The only criteria is that the chapter they submit must be previously unpublished, within the romance genre and follow the theme set by the judges.
