The Little Gems Short Story competition is a mainstay of the RWA contest year. Although it commenced in 2004 with Ruby, the Anthology has been produced in its present form since Pearl 2008. Competition to be included in the annual anthology is fierce resulting in a very fine selection of romantic stories from all romance subgenres. Judging is rigorous with each entry read by three judges and scored for writing technique, character development and the elusive X Factor. The stories must include the current year gem, Jade for 2018, be under 3000 words and rated sweet to mild in sexual content. Our judges never cease to be amazed and delighted by the creativity and variety of entries within those guidelines.
