The West Virginia Writers Annual Writing Contests for 2019 are now open for submissions as of January 2, 2019. We will continue accepting entries through March 31, 2019.
The contest entry forms are posted below along with last year's frequently asked questions list, which will soon be updated for 2019.
As with last year's contests, we will be accepting entries via Submittable, which entrants last year found saves tremendously in terms of time and postage costs.
