Since 2009 City Book Review has reviewed more than 20,000 books under the San Francisco, Manhattan, and Seattle Book Review brands, and Kids’ Book Buzz. We review 300 books a month in more than 40 genres. Books within 90 days of their release date qualify for our general (free) submisison guidelines. Books outside of that can use the Sponsored Review Program for a fee. We review books from large, small and indie presses, and self-published books, and offer other services for authors like cover design, book blogger outreach, and more.
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.
