Contest Gift Entries

Now you can purchase gift entries for the writers in your life! It's a great way to show your faith in them and encourage them to put their work out there in the world.

And did we mention—it's a chance for them to win $1,000 and get published?! 

Each contest offers a grand prize of $1,000, and with our new lineup of contests, there's sure to be a fit for everyone. In addition to the annual Stories That Need to Be Told competition and publication in the corresponding award-winning anthology, 2019 will see the addition of three new contests in connection with the resurrection of TulipTree Review. See the contest description pages for more info on each:
