Folder Free-Entry Writing Contests  

Find free-entry writing contests that give cash prizes. While these writing contests have been verified as legitimate and paying contests, please use discretion when entering any contest, and always read the guidelines, the fine print, and legal stuff to protect yourself and your copyright.

Folder Entry Fee Required Writing Contests  

While we've verified these contests are paying cash prizes, we make no judgment about the cost of the entry fee versus the prize award amount. Only you can decide if the cost is worth the payout, and if the prize is worth the investment of the fee. High-dollar fees should have very high-dollar prizes and/or should be prestigious enough to advance your career (think Pulitzer/National Book Award, etc.) Always make sure you're bringing in more than you're spending. Writing and winning writing contests shouldn't have worse odds than Vegas slot machines!

Folder Free-Entry Poetry Contests  

Poetry contests should actually have losers. No, really! Avoid poetry contests where the only publication is in a book you have to buy to see your poetry in print. Here, we offer contests that bring cash prizes and publication--and free copies of that publication too.

Folder Entry Fee Required Poetry Contests  

To enter or not to enter? that is the question. Whether 'tis nobler to spend 20 bucks on a poetry contest that pays $25 for winning or never entering at all is really your choice. We simply offer a small selection of entry fee required poetry contest leads when we find them.

Folder Writing Grants, Residency & Awards  

While we do our best to verify all writing grants & contests are legitimate, please enter and submit at your own risk and do your homework before sending your work or personal information. Residencies usually require travel and an extended stay, so don't apply unless you can do that. Grants usually require certain activities be met, so read the guidelines carefully. Awards are contests without cash prizes, but with prestigious awards of 'value', either through training, education, experience, or monetary.
