Sunlight Press 2022 Contest

Submit your best articles to sunlight Press submissions in 2022. Learn how to enter the writing Competitions in 2022

This spring we’re delighted to offer a writing contest for creative nonfiction of 1,000 words or less. 

Please submit your personal essay beginning April 1, 2022.

 Submissions must be previously unpublished.

 We will close when we get 200 entries, or on April 30 at 5 p.m. (ET), whichever comes first. 

Only one entry per writer and please write Essay Contest 2022 in the subject line of your email (essays not marked for “contest” will not be considered for the contest). 

The winning writer will receive a $500 cash prize as well as regular payment for their work. 

We will also choose two top finalists to receive $50 (regular payment + cash prize). 

Additional entries will be chosen for regular publication at The Sunlight Press.

How do you submit work?

Email submissions to thesunlightpress@gmail.com with the subject line clearly indicating the genre —

Submissions should be attached in a Word document (docx., doc.). 

Do not send new work for consideration until hearing back from us on the status of a current submission. Also if a piece is not accepted, please wait three to six months before submitting new work. Writers whose work has been accepted please wait three months after its publication to submit new work. Thank you.

Please note: We typically do not consider pieces beyond the word lengths above. We also do not publish how-to articles, or work that is religious or political in nature, nor about current social issues.

What should accompany your submission?

Please include a 3-4 sentence bio and any social media handles (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, etc.), as well as a current email address and contact information. We review simultaneous submissions; please inform us of this status upon submission.

Does The Sunlight Press pay writers upon publication?

Yes, The Sunlight Press pays for original work only, via PayPal. We occasionally accept previously published work (in print, on a personal blog, or another digital publication) but offer no payment.

When will you hear from us?

Every submission will receive an email acknowledging receipt of the submission from the editors. Writers will be informed of the status of their submission within two to three months of submission. Please query after that time period if you have received no update.

The content of The Sunlight Press is exclusively online. The Sunlight Press claims first publishing rights, which revert to the author upon publication; however, please acknowledge The Sunlight Press if your work appears later online or in print. Many thanks.

Final word: We strive to publish pieces within six months of acceptance and welcome your query if that time period has passed.
