Contests

Gotham always has a writing contest (or two) going. These contests are a great way to stretch your talent and imagination, and we dangle nice prizes to give you extra motivation. Check out our current contests. And it's worth a look at the winners and finalists in our past contests; the quality of work always amazes us.
