Contest Open!

The 2024 July Christian Writers Awards Contest is now open! Submit your entries before Sunday, July 14th 2024 11:59 PM Eastern Standard Time. Winners will be announced here on or before Tuesday, July 16th 2024. Entry fee is $49.00 per story.

It's your time to shine!

Do you have a short story the world needs to hear? Maybe it’s the preface to why you became a writer in the first place. Or, maybe it’s a glimpse into a book you’ve already written but haven’t taken the plunge to publish yet.

The Christian Writers Awards is a writing contest hosted by Xulon Press to acknowledge and inspire writers to take a leap of creative faith and share their story. The contest is open to all genres and no previous writing experience is required – it’s just you and the story you’d like to share!

Contest entrants may enter as many times as they’d like, but entries must be 4,000 characters or less including spaces (approximately 700 to 750 words).

The first place grand prize winner will be taking home a FREE Xulon Press Elite Publishing Package valued at $8,780! Second and third place grand prize winners will also win a publishing package.
