2020 Writers Competition

Deadline Nearing for Write On The River Competition  

Where did the time go? It’s January –and a great time to follow through on your writing resolution!

See the easy guidelines for the 2020 Writers Competition (our thirteenth!) and submit your manuscript soon. Six regional writers will win a total of $1200 in cash prizes for short (1000 word) fiction or nonfiction, on any theme or topic. The final online submission date is midnight Saturday, February 1.

Membership in WOTR is not a requirement for those living in Easter Washington, but it is a requirement for any writer living elsewhere in Washington. We are not accepting out-of-state submissions. The fee is $20 per submission or $40 per submission (the latter includes entry in the contest plus three written critiques.)
