* Calls for Submissions/Contests *

On Tuesday while lamenting about not having enough time for everything.....blah, blah, blah, I could've easily typed those few words that were actually about the contests and calls for submissions that I wanted to share. Duh!

So, without further ado ...(ahem...wasting more time)... here are just a few, that may be new to you. There I go, writing bad poetry again. Someone stop me, please!

Terri Weeding’s SUMMERTIME Little Ole Humor Writin’ Contest: No Fee
(I didn't see a Deadline, but did see this: Next Contest Opening Date: June 20, 2012

Women Who Write 2012 International Poetry & Short Prose Contest:
Entry Fee: $12.00 DEADLINE: June 30, 2012

The Dream Quest One Poetry and Writing Contest: Entry Fee $5.00/$10.00

Chicken Soup for the Soul: Calls for Submissions, Various Deadlines
Currently there are SIX anthologies that need your stories. A couple of them are recently posted, too. It's always a good idea to check their website often.

These are just a few that I happened upon. I'm only familiar with Chicken Soup, but the other ones do look legit. And don't can't get published or win anything, if you don't at least TRY! Enter. Submit. You never know! Good Luck!

  1. I've just discovered your lovely blog and I'm now following ~ so nice to meet you!
    Anne ♥♥

  2. I think that there should be competitions for us readers. Somedays it feels as if we work nearly as hard as you writers.

  3. Thanks for the information, Becky. The first one looks especially interesting...

  4. Hi Becky, I hope it's okay if I add this one to your list. Chamberton Publishing is accepting short story and poetry submissions for several upcoming anthologies. I hope you and your readers will check it out.


  5. You're sweet to share all this information.

    Happy Weekend!

  6. Thanks for sharing these, Becky. Great to know who wants stories. Susan

  7. Thanks so much Becky. I think its wonderful that though your time is limited, you're still willing to share it with us and give us information.

  8. Nothing ventured, nothing gained!


  9. I should really find time myself for such things! Perhaps instead of reading whatever is shoved into my hand!?! ha!

  10. Becky, I could not agree more that we must submit to win or to be accepted! Submitting/entering is no guarantee, but not doing it IS a guarantee that you won't win or be accepted.


I'm sorry, but I have to change my comment moderation, due to some strange and offensive comments that were left overnight.
