The CHAUCER Writing Competition recognizes emerging new talent and outstanding works in the genre of Historical Fiction. The Chaucer Awards is a division of Chanticleer International Novel Writing Competitions.
More than $30,000.00 dollars worth of cash and prizes will be awarded to Chanticleer Book Reviews 2015 writing competition winners at the Chanticleer Authors Conference April 30, 2016!
The Chaucer Awards FIRST IN CATEGORY sub-genres are: Pre-Historical Fiction,
Ancient Historical Fiction, World/International History (non-western culture historical fiction), Dark Ages, Medieval, Renaissance, Elizabethan/Tudor 1600’s, Historical Young Adult.
Due to demand, we will divide the Chaucer Awards into two separate contests for 2016: The CHAUCER Awards for historical fiction prior to 1750 and the GOETHE Awards for Historical Fiction after 1750 until the 1970s.
The following titles will compete for the FIRST IN CATEGORY Positions and Awards Packages.
