MEMBER WRITING CONTESTS
The Palm Springs Writers Guild offers several contests and challenges throughout the program season. All entries are read and reviewed by a professional editor and returned with edits, comments, and general feedback.
Any exceptional entry will be published on the website only with the author's permission for others to see. The authors understand, by submitting and allowing us to put their work on the website that some agents or publishers may consider them already published, so it MAY prevent using that work in future publications.
We have changed the monthly contests to "challenges," in which a professional editor will give feedback on your entry. An outstanding entry may be pointed out and displayed on the website along with the edits and suggestions made by the editor. Cost is $15 for a 500-word entry. See Contest page for subject or topic. May be fiction, non-fiction, or memoir.
We will have two larger contests that will be reviewed by the same editor. They will be 2500 words, cost to be announced at time of publication.
You must be a member to enter any contest/challenge. Rules and registration guidelines will be posted for each challenge/contest.
Best of luck to everyone sending in an entry. Your work is very much appreciated, and thank you for being a member and contributing to the success of the Palm Springs Writers Guild.
