Harlequin Creator Fund: First Four Recipients Announced!

October 2019


Submissions to the Harlequin Creator Fund are now closed. Thank you to the many hundreds of writers who sent in submissions.

More than 300 entries from across the U.S. and Canada were reviewed. Four recipients were selected to receive $7,500 in financial support and editorial mentorship.

The four projects selected include both a television and movie treatment and two novels. Harlequin started the Creator Fund to attract and support female writers who tell feel-good stories with a unique point of view. 

“The selected Creator Fund recipients add to Harlequin’s 70-year history of publishing female storytellers. We’re excited to shine a light on their stories and reach new readers and viewers who love feel good entertainment,” shares Merjane Schoueri, Feel Good Project Director.
