Contests are a great way to sharpen your submission skills and get your work out there. Plus, you could win part of the $1,300 in prize money we award to our contest winners. Winning entries are also critiqued in our Winners' Workshop where we announce the winners in a live webinar.
The Institute for Children's Literature and the Institute for Writers offer writing contests year around for various genres. Please see our most current contests below:
