What people are saying about us


“I appreciate you and your judges taking on the monumental task of running the Ageless Authors contest. You have a great program for senior writers. If there is one single thing that makes your contests great, I think, it is trust.”

Tank Gunner
Duncanville, Texas Author

I was given “DANG, I wish I hadn’t done that” from my neighbor and I thought it was an interesting variety of stories that kept this book a “good read” from beginning to end.

“Ageless Authors captures the best offered by seasoned writers – and no other contest does that! I’m grateful to be judged against my peers. We may be the fine aged wines of the writing world!”

Jean Yeager
Rutland, VT author, essayist, playwright

“Recently I took a few writing classes at the local community college and started putting down stories about my past. With great trepidation, I submitted one to the Ageless Authors Contest as a sense of relief and pride came over me. I had actually created something that I felt worthy of an audience. The result of the contest almost didn’t matter. Of course, I received an additional and exciting benefit when the piece I submitted was recognized for quality.”

Hedda Herzog
Berkeley, CA short story writer

“To the anthology judges’ credit, they favor writers who treat familiar topics with unpredictable style, sliding toward sly and pleasing and possessing twists in the tale. Diverse talent graces these pages, and while you might spot an overdone sentiment, you will always experience an exceptional storyteller. And it matters not one whit if she found her stride after she quit dancing to others’ tunes.”

Bill Sanderson
Dallas, TX author

“At age 70, my biggest fear is that I’ll run out of time before I’ve written all the poems from the ideas scribbled on the paper scraps that cover my desk.”

Norma Bernstock
Milford, PA poet

I’m glad I found out about this site and that it has writing contests specifically for us older folks!

“My interest in writing began a few years ago before my grandmother died at 96 years of age. She had saved all the letters I had sent her from Vietnam. My memories of actual events and the interesting people from my early life…are stories that I had never been able to tell until now.”

Larry Sanders
Dallas, TX author
