Love Wins Essay Competition

To celebrate the recent U.S. Supreme Court marriage equality ruling New Millennium Writings (NMW), an award-winning literary journal founded in 1996 is hosting a special "Love Wins" essay competition. NMW will call for essays asking people what the recent SCOTUS decision means to them & their community. The winner will receive $1,000 & publication in the NMW anthology & on their website. The contest will run from July 8th to August 31st. NMW is partnering with two nonprofit organizations, Free2Luv® & Lambda Literary for this timely competition. NMW will donate $1,000 to each organization to further their missions of supporting & empowering the LGBTQ community. Tony Valenzuela, Executive Director of Lambda Literary stated, "On the heels of Marriage Equality becoming the law of the land & one of the most historic advances in LGBTQ civil rights of our time, we're thrilled to partner with New Millennium Writings on this essay contest asking our community what the SCOTUS ruling means to us." The Love Wins essay award winner will be chosen by Guest Judge & Free2Luv Celebrity Ambassador Thea Gill, actress, singer, and LGBTQ activist, best known for her starring role as Lindsay Peterson in the landmark Showtime television series Queer as Folk. Ms. Gill will choose the top winner from selected finalists & the award will be announced on October 11th, National Coming Out Day. Entries into the Love Wins essay competition must be 4,500 words or less. The entry fee is $20 & all entrants will receive a copy of NMW's high-quality anthology.
