Writing Competitions

I love entering competitions, any sort, my family moan sometimes when I tell them about my recent entries. I love the thrill of the possible win. So today I had a little look around the net for competitions for writers. Just a five-minute look revealed loads. Many seem to have an entry fee, but I thought I’d share my findings with you all.

www.bridportprize.org.uk This is a creative writing competition with several categories. Closing date 31st May 2013

www.booktrust.org.uk/books-and-reading/short-stories/prizes this website listed quite a few competitions.

www.writersdigest.com this website had several closed competitions, but I trawled to the bottom and found some that were still open.

Do check out the T&Cs, but it’s another way of getting paid for doing something you love!
