Writing Contests

Looking for writing contests?

Sign up for The Writer e-newsletter to get the inside scoop on our latest contest announcements.

As you already know, The Writer encourages all of our readers to practice their craft and put their stories in front of the eyes of as many readers as possible.

The biggest advice to any writer is to keep writing, and in order to help encourage you to do just that, we’ll be hosting writing contests across every genre. From time to time, we’ll team up with our esteemed colleagues in the industry to up the ante (and prizes).

Contests have always been a vital part of the writing world, giving writers the chance to have their work reviewed by editors and possibly shared with the world. Literary journals, universities and even The Writer have hosted writing contests that have helped authors gain exposure and hone their craft. And sometimes even win some money.

Check this page often to stay updated with our newest contests, submission guidelines and past winners.

Choose your inspiration, submit before the deadline and, as always, keep writing.
