You should receive an email confirmation of your entry into the 2017 OWFI Writing Contest shortly.

Your next step is to write, write, write! Get your submissions done, editor-ready. Make sure you've taken a hard look at the rules to make sure that you've got everything right. In the meantime, we're going to set you up with special privileges so that you can access the Upload a Manuscript page.

If you're an active member of OWFI, your account will be upgraded so that you can upload your manuscripts and send your cover letters. You will be informed when that happens by an email from the OWFI webmaster. You may need to log out and log back in for your membership to fully upgrade.

If you're a full-time student and not an active member of OWFI, then we're going to set you up with a temporary account. You will be contacted with an email to activate your account. This email will also contain a login and password, which you'll need to upload your manuscripts.

When everything's set, you'll be able to go to the following link and upload your manuscripts one by one:

https://www.owfi.org/contest2017/upload

Don't worry about losing this page! Everything I just told you is in the email that we sent you. We look forward to reading your entries and to seeing you on May 6, 2017, at the Embassy Suites in Oklahoma City!
