Hi and welcome.

We're both authors and love to write. We want to encourage you to get writing too, and to make it easy for you, we're putting together this listing of English language writing and poetry competitions from around the world. We'll also be alerting you when respected publishers call for manuscript submissions for novels and other types of books.

On our home page, we'll be listing current opportunities, and on the Calendar page you will find a list of past competitions we have listed so you can schedule them for next year.

So you don't miss out, sign up for our email notifications. If you have a writing competition you would like us to list here, please email: editor (at) writerscompetitions (dot) com

Writing for competitions is a great way to improve your writing skills, and you just might win a prize in the process.

We also know there's nothing like a deadline to force those words to flow.  So have a look through this list, choose one to enter and start writing.

Good Luck!

Julie & Dianne
