Hidden River Arts hosts competitions and awards to encourage diverse writing from independent writers. Please visit our blog where all of our book awards and our Hidden River Review awards are listed, and where the winners of our awards are announced. There are three categories on our blog menu bar, with drop-down menus: Book Awards, Script Awards and Hidden River Review Awards.
We offer a variety of book awards, script awards, short story, poetry and essay awards in order to support a wide variety of writers and writing genres. Each winning manuscript receives a monetary award as well as either publication or (in the case of the Hidden River Playwrighting Award) a public scripted reading of the winning manuscript.
