Gather.com is very pleased to announce the next generation of our First Chapters Writing Competition. On August 1, 2007, Gather will launch the First Chapters Romance writing competition in conjunction with Simon & Schuster’s Pocket Books imprint and Borders enabling a talented Gather member to win a guaranteed publishing contract along with a $5000 cash advance!

These chapters will be rated by the Gather community along with the Gather Editorial Team, and five finalists will be selected through two rounds of voting. One Grand Prize Winner will be chosen for publication by a panel of judges.
