The Bridge Progressive Arts Initiative is a nonprofit creative hub that uses art and design as a vehicle for civic engagement. On the third Friday of each month, the Bridge PAI hosts the Charlottesville Reading Series, a monthly event of live readings of poetry and prose. Emerging and established writers from diverse backgrounds, both locally and nationally are recruited for the series.
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.
