SFPA Contests
Other Speculative Poetry Contests & Awards

Nota bene: these annual contests are not sponsored by SFPA. Please check their websites carefully for current rules and deadlines.

March 1: Balticon Poetry Contest

The Speculative Literature Foundation currently offers six grants:

A. C. Bose Grant
Older Writers Grant
Diverse Writers
Diverse Worlds Grants
Travel Grant  
Working Class Writers Grant

All of our grants are free to apply, and are designed as ‘gateway’ grants, with easy and straightforward applications that should be quick to complete.  We hope that they will both serve the community directly, and also encourage genre writers to explore the wide variety of grants, awards, and residencies available in the larger writing community.
