Writing Contests

On our own Annual Writers' Café Undergraduate Writing Contest page, you can read the work of past winners and, during Spring Term, access the submission guidelines for the contest.

The Creative Writers Opportunities List is a blog that announces writing contests.

The Lex Allen Literary Festival is a yearly literary festival and contest hosted by Hollins University. All undergraduate students are welcome to submit works of fiction and poetry for the chance of winning a cash prize. The submission deadline is in February and the festival takes place in early April.
