Have a Self-Published Book to Promote? Here’s a Contest for You!

22 Jan

The Self-Published Book Award is a contest being given by Writer’s Digest.  The Grand prize is $3,000, national exposure, and a trip to the WD Conference in New York and more.  There will be a grand prize winner, nine first place winners and honorable mentions.  The early bird entry fee (yep, there’s a fee) is $100 for the first submission and $75 for each after.  For more details, Click Here.  Early bird special ends April 1st.


Spark Contest!

21 Dec

Another contest for consideration.  For this one, the theme word for your entry is “spark,” although it does not have to appear in your work.  Prose and/or poetry is accepted, but there is a $10 entry fee. All ready getting ideas?  Click Here For Details

Contest Extended – Writer’s Digest

6 Dec

I received this in the e-mail and thought I’d share it.  It’s a contest that will publish the top 25 winners, and it ends December 17th.  That’s only… eleven days!  The catch-20 is that there is a $20 entry fee, so I’d suggest having complete faith in your story, and thick skin for losing, if you decide to enter.  Also, your entry can only be 1,500 words long.  Details here: Writer’s Digest Contest
