What drives us to write? Where do we find inspiration? And how do we stay focused during these unpredictable times? Five masterly authors weigh in on these questions and more. Their insights, we hope, will help strengthen our collective resolve as we move forward into the new year.
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.
