Just a quick post for the weekend and to share a few contests I found to submit work online. One has a deadline for the end of this month, so maybe this will motivate us to crank out a literary piece of such perfect writing we’ll snag one of the prizes. (Or maybe, just motivate us to do more writing). Either way, you win, right?
Happy writing and have a great weekend —
Glimmer Train; Contest for New Writers; deadline February 29th.
Ploughshares; Emerging Writers’ Contest; deadline now through April 2nd
McSweeney’s; Quarterly submissions; Seem to be ongoing, plus they sound so kind….
Leap Frog Press; Adult and Children’s Fiction (novellas); deadline is May 1st
