Welcome Scribbler,

Winning awards and contests is often cited as one of the best ways to improve your craft and stand out to literary agents and editors. So we launched Scribbler Contests to give writers unique opportunities to enter their work for review by the Scribbler editorial team, which is overseen by a #1 New York Times bestselling author. We’ve put together a calendar of monthly challenges and accompanying prizes we’re proud to present, which includes things like cash, retail gift cards, reviews by some of the best editors in the industry, and more. So sharpen that pencil, grab a cup of coffee, and find that perfect-fit contest. We can’t wait to read your submission, Scribbler!
