Contests!

I just came across this Nonfiction Contest for Graywolf Press and I’m kicking myself for not being prepared. On the other hand, I was ecstatic to discover that this is an annual contest and I already have it on my calendar for next August. What a wonderful opportunity to push myself to write, and re-write, and re-write over the next year. Even if I don’t get the prize (and this is a PRIZE) I’ll at least have 100 or more pages of a manuscript I’m passionate about and I will send it somewhere else–again, and again and again. If anyone has 100 pages of a nonfiction work, hurry and send it in! The submission period ends today.

Speaking of contests, PW.org┬áhas become my best friend. If you’re like me and aren’t prepared for the wonderful opportunity above, don’t despair. PW.org has a continuous list of contests and calls for submission from a range of magazines looking for fiction, poetry, and nonfiction works. Good luck!
