Harlequin Launches Creator Fund for Scripts Seeks Submissions

feel-goodHarlequin, the world’s largest publisher of romantic fiction, has launched the Creator Fund as part of the Harlequin Feel Good Project. The Creator Fund continues Harlequin’s 70-year tradition of promoting female storytellers by offering funding to women creating feel-good content.

The Creator Fund is designed to attract and support up-and-coming and established female writers (in the US and Canada) of fiction, TV or movie scripts, who tell feel-good stories with a unique point of view. The first fund draws from a pool of USD$30,000, and will focus on submissions in a wide range of genres including, but not limited to, comedy, drama, suspense, adventure and historical. The stories must be character-driven and leave audiences feeling uplifted. The writers of the chosen submissions will receive funding and guidance for an opportunity to complete and package their story ideas for advancement.

“We are always looking for unique female voices, and the Creator Fund allows us to pull from a broader group of storytellers, some who might be working on their first pieces of writing, or for those established writers who might be interested in creating something different. We need uplifting stories and voices more than ever and the Creator Fund means we can nurture and develop these stories,” notes Merjane Schoueri, the Feel Good Project Director. 

For more details on submission format, guidelines, and terms and conditions for the Creator Fund, please visit FeelGood.Harlequin.com/CreatorFund. Entries are accepted from January 23 to March 23, 2019.

The Harlequin Feel Good Project launched last fall and is a four-part initiative including Feel Good Sciences, the Harlequin Creator Fund, the Feel Good Challenge and Feel Good Events, designed to explore the power of positive experiences that fans expect from their stories. For additional information about the Harlequin Feel Good Project, please visitFeelGood.Harlequin.com.
