Busboys and Poets Books is an independent, local bookstore with a mission to promote the works of local authors. The 14th Street store is operated by Teaching For Change, a nonprofit organization offering socially conscious readers access to progressive resources. Teaching For Change also hosts author events and provides teachers, parents, and activists with materials seldom found anywhere else.
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.
