So You Think You Can Write is about finding great new voices in romantic fiction. We started as an annual online writing conference and competition focused on Harlequin series romance. Since launching in 2010, we’ve discovered and published more than 30 new writers, and counting, across 15 Harlequin series. This year we added Carina Press, expanding our eligible categories to include sci-fi/futuristic romance, LGBTQ romance, New Adult romance and more.

Harlequin editors conduct talent searches at So You Think You Can Write throughout the year. Check out the Submission Calls page regularly for opportunities.

We look forward to reading your stories.

    Is there a version of the site in french? French speaking editors? I am a woman, who fantasize a lot about love, intrigues around two people learning to know each other. How can i submit a storie if I can pretend that I can write?

  2. Hello!
    I was just wondering that writing a story for Harlequin, is it important that the men be rich?
    I love a good read but I’d like to see a story where just ordinary people like myself just working whatever job find romance and be broke together but still fall in love and face challenges in their life. I have a story or two in mind and would someday like to get feed back on it when possible. What do you think?
    Thanks in advance!

    when writing a romance do not use foreign words or expressions without explaining them- not everyone knows all foreign languages / how can i become a proof reader ?

    On page 202 of Ms. Demeanor by Danica Winters, 2nd paragraph, should be “He seemed pretty upset when I talked to him” not talk to him. Good book.

    On page 216 of Always a Lawman by Delores Fossen, 1st paragaph “and when goes he down” should be when he goes down. Good book.
