Contest Closed. Judging Commencing.

The 2019 September Christian Writers Awards Writing Contest is now closed. The contest ended on Sunday, September 15th 2019 11:59 PM Eastern Standard Time. Winners will be announced here on or before Tuesday, September 17th 2019.

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.

Our judges are eagerly awaiting your story. So, what are you waiting for?! Come join us!
