Since my last contest roundup, I’m ecstatic to share that I was awarded 2nd place in Glimmer Train’s final Family Matters contest. I’ve featured their contests here many times before. How about you, fellow submitter? What victories do you have to share? Who are you excited to hear back from or to send your work to again?
After teaching my first workshop on submitting for publication, I’ve made submission resources available at my new Learn to Submit page.
Much like editors are looking for reasons to reject work, I want to focus on opportunities worth my time. Thus, my list of writing contests below includes reasons to submit to that particular writing contest. May you find a promising opportunity among this list and spend less time searching for where to send your exceptional work.
This contest submissions season covers deadlines from September 1, 2019 through November 30, 2019. Thanks to Literistic, Poets & Writers, Submittable Discover, and New Pages for many of these contests.
