Does Anyone Else Write for Contests?
« on: July 20, 2016, 01:40:43 AM »
I love writing for fiction contests, or using a prompt to write a story. That is the part of writing I enjoy the most! I thought I would share a new contest I just read about a few minutes ago.  If you're chosen, you'll be paid $200. It could be a story or a poem that tells a story.

I hope some of you are interested in this:

I know about chicken soup contests, however, I am yet to participate. I have some friends who won the contest and were featured in the books. Their wins encouraged me to participate but I have been dillydallying since a long time. I have bookmarked the site, I will check this out soon.

I do love to, and have won some money in the past. One of my favorites is the Wergle-Flomp poetry contest for humor poetry. If you google that you will find it. Deadline is in April, I think, so too late for this year but get cracking--it has a great prize. (And that site, Winning Writers, is a great site with a very good reputation!) I won honorable mentions one year. :)

Your link is clickable, however I could find on that page where it says what they pay/what you win. Can you tell me where you saw this? I hate submitting when I don't know if there is actually a prize, or how much. Chicken Soup, I believe, does pay well, but it's just frustrating to not see current the numbers.

I remember telling people I was submitting a story to Chicken Soup. Months past and I didn't. Very upsetting I don't know what happened but my writing idea vanished. I have sent in stuff to contest before but never won. I would love to try again and see if anything comes of it. :)

Definitely check out winningwriters.com
They are one of Writer's Digests top sites.  They have a catalog of, I think, 100 best free writing contests, and they also keep a record of scam contests on their sites so that you can see ones to avoid!

I highly recommend Wergle Flomp, but again, you gotta wait til April to submit.

Keep us posted as to if you submit to CS or somewhere else, and how you do. :)

Actually writing for a contest is one thing that I like to try to do or want to experience but I have no idea where is the right site that advertise a writing contest. Well, thank you guys for sharing Chicken Soup.com  and Winningwriters.com. I will surely search and browse this sites to know the mechanics on how to join their writing contest. Nice thread :)

I have previously worked as a ghostwriter and therefore it does sound really interesting to me.

Though the guidelines look a bit strict but I am sure I would be able to abide by those.

Thanks for sharing the link.

Do you have any other contests which writers can participate in?

Please make sure you share any other contests you come across as well.
