The Writer


As you already know, The Writer encourages all of our readers to practice their craft and put their stories in front of the eyes of as many people as possible.

Writing contests have always been a vital part of the writing world, giving writers the chance to have their work reviewed by editors and possibly published. Literary journals, universities and even The Writer regularly host writing competitions, helping authors gain exposure and hone their craft.
