Another Writing Contest from Writer’s Digest

Hello world and all who write in it! It’s the weekend once again, and I’m here to provide you with another excellent opportunity from our friends at Writer’s Digest.

There are no small opportunities, but this contest is definitely bigger than the last one. I’m walking about Writer’s Digest‘s Annual Writing Competition.

Here are the most important details:

  • The grand prize winner will be announced on a subscriber’s issue of the magazine, receive $5000 in cash, and much more.
  • There are nine different categories in which you can enter.
  • There are two deadlines, the early bird deadline on May 5th and the final deadline on June 1st.
  • The cost to enter varies depending on type of entry (poetry versus manuscript), number of entries, and the deadline. I normally wouldn’t recommend contests with entry/reading fees but Writer’s Digest is well-established and the contest is in its 86th year, so you can safely enter without fear of being scammed.

For full information on the contest and how to enter, follow this link:

I wish everyone the best luck.
