Free entry writing competition news
I'd love to hear your competition news.
Do you have writing tips to share, questions to ask, or suggestions for this blog?
Here's some I've found –
Six Word Wonder are looking for entries of any type of writing as long as it's really short. The prize is $100. I'm definitely going to have a go.
ServiceScape want more words, but they're offering a bigger prize – $1,000. You can enter fiction or non fiction.
If you're an 'early career' writer who can produce 'new writing on innovation and experimentation in the moving image' you could try winning £500 with the Michael O'Pray Prize.
Publication opportunity news
Do you know of any markets (paid or unpaid) looking for submissions?
Here's one I've found –
Short Fiction magazine is a new publication looking for short stories and poetry. They don't pay for most submissions, but if your piece gets the most reader votes you'll receive a £1,000 prize.
Personally I think it would be better to divide that money between all contributors, but then I'm not a fan of popularity type contests (because I never win!)
Thanks to Marguerite who has passed on a link to this paying market for work connected with the moon, plus the news that Secret Attic is back!
I'm doing a book marketing course. As part of that I've republished my small, free, short story collection Not A Drop To Drink.
You'll be doing me a favour and make me happy if you download it from Amazon, Apple or one of the other places it's available.
You might even enjoy reading it! In that case leaving a review would be an even bigger favour – thanks to all those who've already done that.
