ARCHIVE FOR Info
The April 2022 edition of "Writing Life Essentials" is a monthly hand-curated list of contests, grants, scholarships, submissions calls, and awards. We try to prioritize opportunities that are at least one of the following: local, free to apply, and/or committed to celebrating and supporting writers from historically marginalized communities. We do the research, so you have more time for what matters: the writing. Or, adding to your TBR pile. That’s important, too.

For LGBTQ+ writers, a lack of queer-focused guidance, support, and community in writing workshops can stifle or even stall progress for novels. The Novel Immersive for LGBTQ+ Writers is a 9-month online program uniquely designed to fill this void and help queer writers complete or make significant progress towards completing a draft of their novel in a supportive community.
