Details:SouthWest Writers is proud to announce a Call for Submissions to the 2021 Annual Writing Contest. This annual writing contest not only pays cash for the the top three winners in each category and an opportunity to be published, it also gives all current and prospective authors feedback from the judging staff including valuable critiques and advice.

1st 2nd and 3rd place winners will be awarded in 12 categories of fiction and nonfiction prose and 8 categories of poetry. The entries must be original, unpublished (see definition below*), and in English. You do not have to be a member of SouthWest Writers to enter.

Deadline: Midnight May 31, 2021 (Mountain Time)
Fees: $10 per entry
Submission: Online only

First-place winners receive $50, second-place $25, and third-place $10. All winners will receive award certificates and have the option to be published in SWW’s annual contest anthology.

The top three award winners in each category will be announced — in no particular order — at the SWW Saturday meeting on July 3, 2021. Awards will be presented during SWW’s annual business meeting on Saturday, October 2, 2021. Copies of the winner’s anthology will be available for purchase at that time. If a winner cannot be present to receive the award, it will be sent by regular mail. Winners’ names will be posted on the SWW website and in the SouthWest Sage newsletter after October 2, 2021.
