The 2019 Writing Contest is open!
Register as an Individual
Ready to enter the contest? Click on the button below. That's it! You don't even have to know what you plan to submit. All you need is to know that you intend to submit to the contest. Click the button below, and you'll be on your way. When you're ready to upload your individual submissions, you can do that on the Submit a Manuscript page (in the Writing Contest menu!).
Our system is prepared to accept checks or money orders from individuals with idiosyncratic needs. Jack Burgos, the OWFI webmaster, is prepared to assist these individuals on a case-by-case basis. Please email Jack at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Register as a Team
If you are a team of writers who participated in a project (or several!), then this is the place for you to register. Just click the button below, and you'll be taken to a different page, where you'll fill out a short form telling us about your team of writers. When you're ready to upload your team's submissions, you can do that on the Submit a Manuscript page.
Individuals must not attempt to register as a one-person team. Please Register as an Individual instead.
