Kay Snow Writing Contest closes 31 December 2020

Our writing sisters and brothers with Willamette Writers in Oregon conduct this annual contest and it’s open for submissions now through 23:59 on 31 December.

Markya Biaggio, author of Parlor Games, said: “When I was discouraged about my first novel I submitted a chapter to the Willamette Writers Kay Snow Contest and won a prize. That award gave me just the boost I needed to start a new novel… It gave me credibility, enough credibility to convince quite a few agents to take a look at my next novel. …I believe submitting one’s best work to contests is well worth the effort.”

Categories are:

  • Fiction (flash, short story, novella, novel excerpt)
  • Creative nonfiction (essay and memoir)
  • Poetry
  • Drama and screenplay
  • Students (divisions are Grades 1-6 and Grades 7-12)
