Slated to be the only bookstore in the Bronx, the Lit. Bar encourages curious readers and welcomes literary, art, and community gatherings—connecting the great pastimes of social drinking and introverted reading. Offering a carefully curated selection of general books, gift items, and programming, the bookstore hosts author events, wine tastings, poetry slams, and children’s storytime readings.
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.
