Tampa Writers' Alliance Annual Contest - Call for Entries

The Tampa Writers Alliance is proud to share with you their new and improved Annual Contest, opening for submissions this Wednesday, September 1st.

They sponsor nearly every genre and sport over fifty judges from the professional ranks of writing. Their contestants will receive written comments from at least three highly qualified judges dedicated to their genre. Contestants will compete against fellow writers in their specific genre, not the broad categories of Fiction or Non-Fiction. The Contest closes October 31st.

Please share this announcement with your group or organization. They welcome entries from all. Please visit Their blog or website for additional information: or
