2014 Royal Palm Literary Award Competition

We are no longer accepting "banquet only" reservations for the RPLA Banquet at this year's conference.  In order to attend, you must register either for the full weekend or or the full day on Saturday.




What is the RPLA?


The RPLA is a prestigious writing competition that recognizes extraordinary writing in some 30 genre-categories.  RPLA is unusual among writing competitions in that it not only recognizes winning entries but also provides blind, objective, and constructive written assessments to all entrants.  Each year, RPLA winners are first announced at the Awards Banquet during the annual conference.

The 2014 competition is now closed, so now the question on everyone's mind is, "Who won?"  Winners' identities are secret until the names are announced at the Awards Banquet at the Annual Conference on October 25.  See the "upcoming events" tab on the website for more information about the conference and to register. then sit back, enjoy the conference and Banquet, and cheer during this celebration of all writers and writing.

The 2015 RPLA guidelines will be posted in December, so check back often-and keep working on your entries!
