Win $5K in Glamour Magazine's Essay Contest

Here’s a contest sponsored by Glamour magazine (sorry, but I always think of George Costanza now when I hear “Glamour magazine"….!). But this is serious stuff here—you could win $5000!

Got a Great Real-Life Story?

Tell it to Glamour! Enter our sixth essay contest and you could win $5,000, see your story published in an upcoming issue, and meet with a top literary agent. Every woman has an inspiring true story inside her, and we want to hear yours. Is it about time you tested your own courage or found your passion? Start writing now! A panel of writers—including Pulitzer Prize winner Jane Smiley and Seabiscuit author Laura Hillenbrand will help choose the winner.

Contest rules and details can be found here. (Note: No fee!)


DC-area author Leslie Pietrzyk explores the creative process and all things literary.
