Sponsors & Friends

If you've enjoyed the competition in the past and would like to see it continue into the future, please consider making a donation to the Literary Taxidermy Writing Competition — any amount helps! Running the competition is a labor of love, but it is neither easy nor inexpensive. It is only through the generous support of sponsors and friends like you that we are able to continue. To donate, just click the PayPal button below. (Note: You don't need to have a PayPal account to complete the transaction.)


Thank You!

We'd like to recognize those generous and helpful organizations and individuals who have helped us along the way during the Literary Taxidermy Writing Competition. They have donated time, money, or resources — and we couldn't run the competitions without their support. We'll continue to update this list throughout the year. If we've somehow forgotten to include you, please let us know!
