You should receive an email confirmation of your entry into the 2018 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 Submit a Manuscript page.

If you're an active member of OWFI, your account has be upgraded so that you can upload your manuscripts and mail your cover letters. The email you'll be getting gives you additional instructions, but you don't have to wait. If you're ready, you can start submitting your manuscripts right now.

If you're a full-time student and not an active member of OWFI, then you should join OWFI as soon as possible. It's free, and you kinda have to do it to participate. You will be contacted with an email to activate your account.

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

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 5, 2018, at the Embassy Suites in Oklahoma City!
