* WRITING CONTESTS & CONTESTS & CONTESTS ~ OH MY! *

Recently I came across a ton of writer contests and calls for submissions and fortunately managed to copy and save all the links, so I could share them on my blog!

Many of these are very unique. I'm not posting these for any kind of PR because I've never heard of most of them. But if you're at all interested, click on the links and read more. Some have entry fees, some have huge prize money, and more.

  1. Wow. What a selection.
    Are any of them tempting you?

    1. Hi EC - Yeah, pretty cool collection of contests, huh? A couple are "tempting" me, but that happens fairly often...with only the actual writing and submitting being the problem!

  2. I keep thinking that one day I'll have to submit something to a contest somewhere. Actions mean more than my thinking, but it's easier just to think about it I guess.

    Thanks for the mention. Always happy to follow a new blog I come upon, especially when it's on Blogger.

    1. Hi Arlee - I've only submitted to a few contests. Sometimes I let the odds of actually winning or even placing to scare me from trying. The writer that YOU are, though, I think you would do really well! Let me know if you do enter any of these. And you're very welcome, for the "welcome!"

  3. You've been busy researching. Thanks for sharing... won't be entering anything though because I first need to write! Ha.

  6. This would be great news if I actually sat down and did some writing.

I love comments, especially because I know the time it takes to stop and type one, even a short one! Thanks very much!
