Do you know any wonderful (but unpublished) writers ready to take the important step of entering a contest?

The Unknown Writers’ Contest, sponsored by the Denver Woman’s Press Club, awards cash prizes to winners and provides constructive comments to all entrants in three categories: nonfiction, fiction, and poetry.

For the first time in 2014, all submissions will be accepted online. The contest is open to Colorado residents, women and men, age 18 and over, whose work has never appeared with a paid byline and paid in cash or copies. The submission deadline is February 17, and all entrants will be invited to a reception at the DPWC’s historic clubhouse on April 6, 2014.

Cash prizes will be awarded in each category: 1st place $125, 2nd place $75, and 3rd place $50. Entrants may submit one entry in each category with a 2,000-word limit for fiction and nonfiction and a 40-line limit for poetry. Entry fees are $25 for fiction and nonfiction and $15 for poetry. For complete rules and to enter online, go to http://www.dwpconline.org/writing-contests.
