St. Louis Writers Guild Contests.
St. Louis Writers Guild holds at least three writing contests every year. Our Short Story Contest has been held since 1920, and was even won by Tennessee Williams in 1935. The Deane Wagner Poetry Contest has been held since the mid 1990's and was named to honor a dedicated St. Louis Poet. The Young Writers Awards is SLWG’s way of encouraging young writers.
