Writers Contests

Learn About the Unknown Writers' Contest

DWPC is still going strong: More than 200 members after more than 100 years

Unknown Writers’ Contest

The Unknown Writers’ Contest is an annual contest open to Colorado writers who have never been paid for their writing. Cash prizes are offered in the categories of nonfiction, fiction, and poetry. In addition to the chance to win a prize, each entry receives written comments from professional writers who are members of the club. Click here for more information on the Unknown Writers’ Contest.

Since 1898, the club has provided a gathering place for professional women newspaper journalists and published authors to organize, socialize, and earn a living through writing. Until that time, there had been no other such place for professional women writers. 

Jewelry Sale 2021

In the 1980s, the club broadened its membership to include publicists and other allied professions. Today, the Denver Woman’s Press Club honors its heritage by promoting professional development and providing support to members through educational, social, and philanthropic means.
