A note about gifting of contest fees:
We know contests can get expensive for writers. That’s why we’ve added ways for friends, family, or any kind of generous benefactor (we won’t ask questions!) to gift you a contest entry. A sponsor can make a one-time gift to you of one submission, two submissions, or they can become a Patreon Supporter at the “Sustainer” level or above and then get in touch with us to request a free contest entry for a friend and send us your name and email address. Also, while we’re talking about Patreon, you can become a Patreon Supporter at the “Sustainer” level or above and you will be able to submit to any current or future Atticus Review writing contest for free as long as you remain a supporter.
