Enter the Guideposts Writers Workshop Contest!

Tell Us Your Story! Enter for a chance to attend the 2016 Guideposts Writers Workshop!


Win a week with us at the famous Guideposts Writers Workshop (all expenses paid), where you'll learn all about inspirational storytelling. Your story could be read by millions in one of our magazines, Guideposts, Angels on Earth or Mysterious Ways . We’re looking for true, first-person stories, not sermons or essays. It can be your own story or something you’ve written for someone else. We’ll pick 12 candidates for the workshop in Rye, New York, October 17-21, 2016, taught by the editors of Guideposts.
