BYU English Department Contests

There are presently no open calls for submissions.

The BYU English Department sponsors several student creative writing contests each year.  Whether you write fiction, poetry, or nonfiction, there is likely a contest that is right for you. The department also manages year-round submissions of fiction, poetry, nonfiction, and visual art for the journal Inscape.

Below you will find detailed guidelines for each contest or call for submissions as well as links for submitting your entry online.  If you do not have a submittable account, you will need to create one during the submission process.  

If you have any questions regarding the creative writing contest, please contact
