Books, writing, reading and words. I love them; do you?

Creative #Writing #Contests Table Updated

Just one of my pictures featured on Picfair.

Time for your monthly reminder that the writing contest table has been updated. It lives on the ‘Resources’ page. Some contests are free to enter and offer prizes as high as £20,000 (novel), £500 (poem), £2000 (review), $3000 (essay). The table currently offers contests with entry dates from August 2018 through to 28th February 2019.

This post has been scheduled, as I’ll be travelling on the due date, having been away from home for a few days. That’s also why the table shows contest dates for July still; I’ll cancel those on my return to the desk.

Submit your entries in plenty of time. There are spectacular prizes to be had. Some contests are FREE to enter, but please don’t be sucked in by false arguments complaining about ‘paid for’ contests: most are run by voluntary organisations with little money. Entry fees go toward providing the prizes and sometimes to pay judges, who are usually professional people in the writing world whose time is precious.

Think of the kudos if you win!

The table updates every time I save it, so whenever you visit, it’s as current as it is on my PC. You can access it by clicking here. Have fun and get some cash from your writing.

I subscribe to a few sources (some of which cost money!) for information to pass to you here. If you’d like to help me keep producing this resource and pay for those sources I buy, please consider clicking on the green ‘Buy me a Coffee’ link at the right of any tabbed page. It costs about £3.00. Thank you.

If you’d like a monthly reminder in your email, please add your details on the small form at top of the right-hand column on the ‘Blog’ page. Neither I, nor WordPress, will spam you, but you’ll receive an informative email each time I post.

And the picture above? Just a spot of inspirational imagery.

I’m also a photographer and belong to an organisation called Picfair that believes photographers should be paid for their work (photography’s expensive!). You can find the original of the picture above here. And my gallery of work on the site, here.
