Writing Contest Opportunities

Local writers should check out these contest opportunities (with cash prizes for the winners) for their work. Hurry because deadlines are coming up!

Oregon Writers Colony is holding its fiction and nonfiction contests.  This year they have a new category–50 Word Stories.  Yes, you read that right.  Submissions are required to be exactly 50 words in length (not counting the title).  The deadline is August 15th, 2019.

Poets are invited to submit their work to the Oregon Poetry Association’s Fall contest. There are a number of categories, including one with the theme of “Our Common Life.” The deadline is September 1, 2019.
