Looking for some motivation to get writing? Check out these upcoming contests:
Poets and Writers magazine has a vetted list that allows you to sort by genre and submission date. These are the creative nonfiction listings, but of course P&W lists other genres as well. The CNF list includes contests open to anyone, as well as contests geared toward students, published authors, authors of color, and even authors looking or willing to spend time in the desert. Looking for a major motivator? Check out the contest by Narrative Magazine, open to anyone, with a deadline of November 30! With an award of $3250, this just might be the time to hit print and send your piece in.
WordPress also has a list, which you can find here. This list includes multiple writing forms, including the Wag Revue Winter 2011 contest and a chance to win a trip to Belize for your travel writing story. You can also find these and more on our Resources page.
Good luck and let us know when you win!
