SFWP Writing Contests

The inaugural SFWP poetry contest, judged by Writer’s Center board member and workshop leader Rose Solari closes on September 1* (see eligibility note below).  For guidelines, FAQ’s, and the online entry form, please visit

The Santa Fe Writers Project was founded by native Washingtonian Andrew Gifford in 1998, and has held an internationally recognized literary awards program since 2000. For more details on the history of SFWP, please visit

Poetry not your cup of tea? No problem. This year’s literary (fiction/nonfiction) contest is judged by NPR’s Alan Cheuse, and runs through December 15. More details on that program can be found right here.

Questions? Contact SFWP.

Some may not be eligible to submit to the poetry contest. This is language found in SFWP's FAQ.

I am currently (or have been) Ms. Solari’s student. Am I eligible?
If you will be attending Ms. Solari’s writing classes in 2011 (prior to September 1st), then you are not eligible for the Program. All entries are blinded, so all past students are eligible. Employees and board members of The Writer’s Center in Bethesda, MD are not eligible.
