A new weekly journal of fiction from the folks who brought you Electric Literature, Recommended Reading will publish one story, chosen by a diffferent author or editor, every week. "In this age of distraction, we'll uncover writing that's worth slowing down and spending some time with," editors Benjamin Samuel and Halimah Marcus say about their latest project. "And in doing so, we'll help give great writers, literary magazines, and independent presses the recognition (and readership) they deserve."
Find details about every creative writing competition—including poetry contests, short story competitions, essay contests, awards for novels, grants for translators, and more—that we’ve published in the Grants & Awards section of Poets & Writers Magazine during the past year. We carefully review the practices and policies of each contest before including it in the Writing Contests database, the most trusted resource for legitimate writing contests available anywhere.
