February Top Picks: Opportunities for Writers

grubstreet Image

The February 2023 edition of "Writing Life Essentials" is a monthly hand-curated list of contests, grants, scholarships, submission 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, treating yourself to a book from your TBR for V-Day. That’s important, too.
