The 1st of the month is when I let you know the creative writing contest table has been updated. (I actually update it several times during each month, but the reminder comes just this once!) You access the table through the ‘Resources’ page, here.
Many contests are free to enter and offer great cash prizes. Some seek unpublished or beginner writers. The table currently offers contests with entry dates from February to May 2020.
It’s best to submit entries in plenty of time to win spectacular prizes and real kudos. Please ignore moans about ‘paid for’ contests: most competitions are run by voluntary organisations with little money. Entry fees provide prizes and sometimes 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.
Hours of my precious time are spent finding and updating information, and I pay sources for information I pass on freely to you. If you’d like to help me keep producing this resource, click the green ‘Buy me a Coffee’ button in the right-hand column of any tabbed page. Surprisingly, it’ll cost you 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 provide your details on the small form. Neither I, nor WordPress, will spam you, and you’ll receive an informative email each time I post.
