Writing contests are a great way to get your work out there for others to read. They also provide motivation and deadlines that will keep you cranking out those pages. Below are three contests that are coming up SOON. Check them out and ENTER! Then be sure to post a comment to let me know what you entered and ultimately, the results!
Gival Press is offering their 8th annual short story contest – deadline is august 8th. Entry fee is $25.00 and the top prize is a whopping $1,000.00!
Only poets who have NOT previously published a book of poetry are eligible for this year’s event, so to all you who have been waiting for your right time – jump in! This is it! Entry fee is $25.00 and submissions must be received between August 1 and September 30, 2011.
The American Zoetrope Screenplay contest is offering $5,000.00 for the best script! Although the actual deadline isn’t until September 6th, I’m including it here because you get $15.00 off the registration fee if you submit it by August first.
Write on everyone!
