Washington Writers’ Publishing House is a non-profit organization that has published over 50 volumes of poetry since 1975 and so far nearly a dozen volumes of fiction. The press sponsors an annual competition, featured in Poets & Writers, for writers living in the Washington-Baltimore area, and the winners of each category (one each in poetry and fiction) comprise our set of published works each year. This year’s contest will open on July 1!
WWPH has received grants from the Lannan Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts, the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities, the Nation magazine, and the Poetry Society of America. Many individuals have also assisted, encouraged, and supported our work through the years.
