Founded in 1974, Changing Hands Bookstore is an independent community bookstore and online bookseller that gives a portion of its proceeds to local schools and over two hundred local, national, and international charities and service organizations. A second location, in Tempe, was opened in 1998. The bookstores host frequent author readings and signings, writing classes and workshops, and other literary events. The Phoenix branch of the bookstore also has the First Draft Book Bar, which serves beer, wine, coffee, and food, and hosts a happy hour book club.

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.
