Beginning October 15, we will accept submissions for the 2019 Ageless Authors Writing Contest. We will accept your outstanding writing through March 15, 2019.

The 2019 writing contest will be divided into five categories – memoir, humor, adventure, romance, and poetry. In addition, Ageless Authors will present the first annual Bivona Prize, awarded in honor of our late founder, Ginnie Bivona. This prize will be awarded for the boldest, most inventive entry.

The guidelines for this next contest will soon be available on our Contests page. As usual, all entries must be submitted through our Contests page to

Also in October, we will publish our second anthology of the best writing from our last contest exclusively for senior writers age 65 and older.

“This is the time that Ageless Authors comes alive,” says Larry Upshaw, Executive Director of the worldwide senior writers’ group. “When we accept submissions and sell copies of our last anthology, we spread the word to older writers everywhere that their creative efforts matter.

“Our last contest had more than 300 submissions from every state, Canada, Western Europe and the Caribbean.”
