Enter your Work in Writing Contests

We have an extensive array of creative writing contests each year with a range of recognitions and prizes. After initial screening by Beloit faculty, each contest is judged by a writer, literary critic, or faculty member not teaching at Beloit. The Mackey Award is judged by an established American author.

The deadline for all contests is Friday Dec. 6, 2019, by noon. 
Any questions regarding the contests should be directed to Chuck Lewis (lewisc@beloit.edu) or any instructor of creative writing.
