Writing Contest

The 2018 San Miguel Writer's Conference Writing Contest is now CLOSED for submissions. 

Thank you everyone who submitted pieces of writing. We will email everyone with the results of the writing contest mid-December.

Do you have poetry, creative non-fiction, fiction or a Spanish short story? Well, now is the time to polish that piece and submit it to us. This year we will be selecting one winner from each category and inviting them to join us in magical San Miguel de Allende. Not only could you be one of the writers to walk away with a “Full Conference Registration,” free lodging, and an agent pitch session, but you could also earn the prestige of being published by the San Miguel Writers’ Conference on our website.
