If you’re new to the CWG, or just new to submitting to our contests, you may be wondering how this all works. Below is a step-by-step guide to submitting to our Monthly Contests:
Step One: Check out our Info Page
You can find all the information you’ll need about the current month’s theme, deadlines, and word lengths by going to our website and then clicking on Members > Contests > Monthly Contest Series Info, or just click HERE. Once you’ve written your poem or short story and are ready to submit, move along to Step Two.
Step Two: Log In
When you became a member, you should have received a Welcome email with a password and an invitation to setup your profile. If you completed this step, hooray! Logging in should be easy. If not – no worries. Either way, to access the contest submission form, you’ll need to go to Members > Log In. Enter your information (using the same email address you used when you paid for your membership), or click the Forgot Password? link at the bottom of the page to request a new password.
Step Three: Locate and Fill Out the Form
Once you’re logged in, you will see a new option under Members > Contests that wasn’t there before: 2023 Monthly Member Contest Submission. Click on this and it’s straightforward from there!
If you still have trouble logging in, finding the form, or submitting to the contest, please reach out to our tech guy, John, at email@example.com. Good luck, writers!
