Writing Contests Are Amazing Practice
Writing contests are some of the best writing practice you can get.
We’ve found that if writing contests are set up the right way, participating in them can be life changing. That’s why four times a year, we partner with literary magazines to host writing contests, giving away over $5,000 in prizes and publishing hundreds of writers for the first time.
