Wag’s Revue Writing Contest

31 January 2013

The editors are excited to announce that beginning with Issue 11, the magazine compensates $100 per piece (poem or group of poems, essay, or short story).

Wag’s Revue holds two contests annually, the Winter Writers Contest from December through March and the Summer Writers Contest from June through August. The contests are open to all three genres and are judged by the editors. For each, first prize is $1000 and guaranteed publication, second prize $500 and third $100. All pieces are considered for publication. There is a $20 reading fee per piece.

Open reading periods are held from early March through May and from September through November. Submissions are currently open.

This year, we switched over to Submittable (the service formerly known as Submishmash). There you’ll find all guidelines and can upload your submission. While we allow for simultaneous submissions, if your work is accepted elsewhere, please withdraw the piece on Submittable, rather than emailing us about it.

Take Me to Submittable!

If you submitted during the open period this Spring, the editors are still reading those submissions and you will hear from us in the coming months. Thanks to those who submitted to the Summer Writers Contest. Winners will be announced in the new year.

If you are at all concerned about your submission, please email the editors at

If you’re interested in writing for our blog, The Wag, please shoot an email to blog sultan Ray Sultan at  ,including your resume, clips, and pitches of columns to write.

The New Jersey Second Amendment Society’s (NJ2AS) First High-School Essay Writing Contest

9 November 2012

 The New Jersey Second Amendment Society (NJ2AS) is holding its first high school essay writing contest. Beginning November 1st, high school students are invited to submit an essay up to 500 words about the Second Amendment.

Inspired by the recent surge in firearm ownership throughout NJ the New Jersey Second Amendment Society created this contest to help students explore their belief and understandings about the second amendment to the US Constitution. 

The theme for the contest is “what is the meaning of the Second Amendment and how does it relate to the modern world.” Students are encouraged to use the theme as a guideline and to be creative with the interpretation of the Second Amendment as they describe its relevance to their lives.

In order to be consider, all essays must adhere to the following format:

  • Double spaced
  • 1 inch margins
  • Include an essay title
  • Have 12 point font
  • Use Microsoft Word or a compatible format

The contest is open to all high school students in New Jersey, and all essays must be 500 words or less. Only one essay may be submitted per student. The essay must be related to the Second Amendment and the individual right of the people to keep and bear arms.

Submissions must be submitted by email to by March 30, 2013, 5:00pm EST. The winners will be announced on June 1, 2013.

Winner of the contest will get the opportunity to participate in a Gun Test Drive with Gun for Hire Academy. They can shoot total 144 rounds through one mystery gun, six long-guns and ten handguns. (parental permission may be required)
