Writers Workshop Contest

Enter the Guideposts Writers Workshop Contest and you could win a spot in the very first Guideposts Writers Workshop to conducted online. We’ll share everything we know about inspirational storytelling, and your story could be read by millions in one of our magazines—Guideposts, Angels on Earth, All Creatures 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.

It’s required that you also include a cover letter that tells us about yourself and your life experience. Use the form below to submit your story and cover letter by June 26, 2020. Entries can also be sent via e-mail at [email protected].

Winners will be notified by mid-August 2020. Please note: We acknowledge winning entries only. Writers who have attended previous Guideposts workshops are not eligible.

Please note: Because the coronavirus outbreak has forced us to work from home and we have not had access to postal mail, only online entries are being accepted this year. If you submitted an entry via postal mail, please use the form below or the above email address to resubmit your story and cover letter by the end of June.
