Alright, maybe not “crazy,” but I’m doing the Charleston because I’m really excited about entering these contests. Until this point, I’ve been focused solely on craft and doing my best to stand out in the slush pile. Recently, a writer friend of mine pointed out that another great way to set your writing apart is to participate in contests. She even found her first agent that way. So here we go. 🙂
This week, I entered three contests advertised in the RWA’s trade publication. They are:
- The Cleveland Rocks Romance Contest
- The Fire & Ice Contest
- The California Hooker Contest
There’s a contest through the RWA’s young adult chapter that I’ll submit to in March–very excited!
Now, I need your help! I want to enter more contests, but I’m being picky because I know there are a lot out there–some more reputable than others. I’m wary of reading the fine print when entering my work in anything like this (are you guys?). I’d love to find a contest for unpublished writers–particularly those writing YA, romance, or paranormal. If you know of any good ones, please post below!
