The time has come around once more! Sorry I’m a day late, but I had more urgent matters to deal with. Anyway, here’s your monthly reminder to let you know the creative writing contest table has 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!). A lot are also looking for either unpublished or beginner writers. The table currently offers contests with entry dates from June 2019 to February 2020.
Submit 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 hours finding and updating the information), and I subscribe to 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 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 is expensive). You can find the original of the picture above here. And my gallery of work on the site, here.
