Hear ye all who write! Writer’s Digest hath released a new list of duels!
WritersMarket.com lists hundreds of contests for writers of fiction, nonfiction, poetry, writing for children, and more. Here are three with January deadlines:
Colorado Prize for Poetry is offered annually for the best previously unpublished book-length collection of poetry. The winner receives $2,000 and publication of the book. Deadline: January 14 (postmark).
Crazyhorse Fiction Prize is an annual award for the best previously unpublished short story. Prize is $2,000 and publication in Crazyhorse. Deadline: January 31.
The Eric Hoffer Award for books is offered annually for the best previously and independently published book. The winner receives $2,000. And there are cash prizes for everyone in the top ten. Deadline: January 21.
Bonus Listing: Writer’s Digest Short Short Story Competition is offered annually for the best previously unpublished short short story (in this case, stories containing fewer than 1,500 words). The top winner receives $3,000, a trip to New York City, and other great prizes. And there are cash prizes for everyone in the top ten. Rather than a January deadline, this contest closes December 16.
(NOTE: If you’re unable to access the listing, it means you either need to log in or sign up for WritersMarket.com first.)
Good Luck to all of ye!
