This section lists current literary contests and awards open to Canadians and International entries. Each entry links to a blog entry with details and a link to the contest website. While this list is updated regularly, it is impossible to keep track of every change in contests details. Please exercise due diligence before submitting to any contest. We welcome new listings. If you have a link you would like to see added to this list, please Submit a Contest Title or Link.
In all instances, please check contest deadlines and other details and follow submission guidelines in individual contest websites. The Writing Pool will not be held responsible for changes to contest details or failure to qualify.
If asked how you heard about a contest, submission, or site you found here, we would love it if you mention The Writing Pool!
