Nataka Writers' Resources: Writing Grants, Awards and Literary Contests

Presented are literary sources to help writers publish their work, promote their writing or submit existing works for literary prizes, awards or grants. As expected there are conditions attached but for those with patience to search, read through, and with nothing to lose, a submission to some publishers is always worth it for completed works !

As an example, Restless Books in New York has the following offer:

A prize of $10,000 and publication by Restless Books is given in alternating years for a debut book of fiction or nonfiction by a first-generation immigrant. The 2022 prize will be given in fiction. Writers who have not published a book of fiction in English are eligible. Using only the online submission system, submit a novel or collection of short stories of at least 45,000 words, a curriculum vitae, and a one-page cover letter by March 31. There is no entry fee. Visit the website for complete guidelines.


Search under grants and filter the results to suit.
