Writing Contests

Every writer thinks about entering writing contests. But there are some pitfalls to be aware of.

Before the Internet, it was more challenging to check and find out if a contest was legitimate or not.

But one thing is still valid in the search for a good writing contest: If there is a fee to enter your work, it must be reasonable.

Many writing contests are not contests at all.

Every entry wins, and the writer is offered to purchase a book with all the entries, including their submission.

You may want to enter this type of contest just for the certificate and recognition, but you don’t want to buy the special book they will print up with all the winning entries.

There are a great many writing contests you can enter all over the world. Pitting yourself against other writers can be a window into a different world. Sometimes, winning a contest can propel you into a different world, as certain contests will put your work in front of legitimate agents and editors.

You will learn to meet a deadline whether you enter a local, state, national, or international contest. In addition, you will be able to study previous winning entries and perhaps be inspired to learn a new form or genre of writing.

Flex those writing muscles, and do yourself proud.
