Tips From the Editor
WWPH is a diverse, inclusive, collaborative literary press staffed entirely by volunteers and so winning authors are also expected to become active members working in book production, design, promotion, editing, and judges for a minimum of two years. WWPH manuscript prizes include $1,500 honorarium, publication, 25 author copies, editorial guidance, and launch promotional support. WWPH also publishes a bi-weekly online literary journal, WWPH Writes, which spotlights work from a poet and prose writer in each issue. This bi-weekly publication is free to submit and subscribe to--and will give writers insight into our literary sensibility. More details on WWPH Writes on our website: www.washingtonwriters.org.
