AAWP/Voiceworks Sudden Writing Prize

Date: Sat July 31 2021 12:00 am to Sat July 31 2021 11:59 pm


We were deeply interested in capturing a composite “picture” of what people are writing about. Now. We invite creative work—short-short fiction, “sudden” fiction, “sketchy” stories, creative nonfiction, poetry, as well as hybrid forms.

We accept submissions on the following scale: up to 400 words prose, 40 lines for poetry, 200 words for prose poems, and the equivalent for hybrid forms. Submissions must be previously unpublished. We invite emerging writers to send their most polished work, without delay.

The winner receives $500, their work published on the Express Media website and a Voiceworks subscription, and a one-year membership to the AAWP.

Entry Fee $5
