Reedsy has announced that a number of FanStory writing contests have been selected as the best writing contests of 2022! We've shared some of them here.


3-6-9 Poetry Contest
A variation of the Haiku but with a strict syllable count. This poetry contest challenges you to write a poem with only 18 syllables and three lines. It's fun and creative. Cash Prize!

Haiku Poetry Contest
A Haiku is a poem that also only uses three lines. But usually it's focus is nature. There is also a little flexibility on the syllable count. Cash Prize!

Take A Photo Poetry
Take a photo of anything. Write a poem about it. This poetry contest demonstrates the creativity and sometimes great emotion a photo can bring. Cash Prize!


Share Your Story
We all have stories to share. Some stories, perhaps, that we'd like to forget. This contest encourages you to share a little bit about your life experience. Cash Prize!

True Story Flash
Our true story flash writing contest gives you the fun of writing a flash story. But this time a true story. Can you share a true story with 100 words? Cash Prize!
