Contest Update: Donation and Gift Submissions are Now Open!!

May 8, 2018News

We are excited to unveil a new category for our 2018 Contests! You now have the option of donating a contest submission to a writer for the genre of their choice. Writers receiving donations also get a year-long subscription to BWR!

You can gift a contest submission to a writer you know OR you can choose to donate a submission anonymously that will be given to a writer who needs it (pay it forward!).

Writers! If you can’t afford our contest fee but still want to enter, please email us at You do not have to prove financial hardship. We will take you at your word. This is first come, first serve. We will contact writers as entries are donated.
