The time has come, again! Here’s your monthly reminder about the creative writing contest table, to tell you it’s been updated. It lives on the ‘Resources’ page, here.
For new visitors:
Many contests are free to enter and offer great cash prizes (best prize is £16,000.00; you could buy a LOT of books with that!). The table currently offers contests with entry dates from May 2019 to February 2020.
Submit your entries in plenty of time. There are some spectacular prizes, and real kudos to be had. Please ignore complaints about ‘paid for’ contests: most competitions are run by voluntary organisations with little money. Entry fees provide prizes and often pay judges; usually professional people in the writing world whose time is precious.
Imagine the joy when you win! The cash and the kudos. And it won’t hurt your CV.
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 for your writing.
All this takes precious my time (I’ve spent around 8 hours over the past 3 days finding and updating the information), and I subscribe to some sources that charge for information I freely pass to you. You’ll help me keep producing this resource if you click the green button on the right of any tabbed page and ‘Buy me a Coffee’. Rather surprisingly, it costs you about the price of a coffee. Thank you very much!
If you’d like this monthly reminder as an email, please click the ‘Follow this blog’ button at the top of the right-hand column and add your details on the small form. Neither I, nor WordPress, will spam you, but you’ll receive an informative email each time I post. And the picture above? 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.
