Requirements: Author must live in Oregon or Washington. You may submit as many book reviews as you wish but only one prize category selected per book. Minors must get parental approval before sending submission/application.

Why you could win: This is not a distant and impersonal national contest with 10,000 submissions to compete against, but rather a local contest with 30-50 submissions on average. Our six prize categories improves your chances of winning. Our goal is to reward local women writers. That’s why we have awarded over $1,000 in prizes to local Oregon women in our contests.

Free promotion: For authors & bloggers we will gladly link and promote your website and your books when we feature your review. Even non-winning review submissions will have a chance to be featured on our website.
