Writing Contest Opportunities

Submissions are now open for two 2019 writing contests!

One contest will be of interest to those who specialize in writing short stories, articles, essays, and poems. All entries must not have been previously published. This is an open contest sponsored by SouthWest Writers (SWW). Go to the 2019 Short Prose & Poetry Contest page for details.

The second writing contest focuses on published books and is sponsored by the Military Writers Society of America (MWSA). The book contest is normally only open to their membership, but because our two groups are co-hosting a writing conference this September, MWSA has graciously allowed SWW members to participate without joining their organization. For the MWSA book contest, go to the SWW-only page.
