I recently became interested in submitting stories and my MS to various writing contests. I have located contests for short stories, poetry and novels. Prizes vary widely from possible publication to money.
I haven’t won anything yet because the contests I entered are still open, but I’ll keep trying. It’s fun to write a wide variety and since practice makes better, this is great painless practice.
I’ve listed information about several contests which are open at the moment on a separate page of this blog. Check it out and submit your stuff.
You might just win!
