Writing Cash Contests & Competitions
Winning some extra cash is high on the agenda for many of us. If you love writing it's definitely worth keeping an eye open for any writing cash prize competitions or contests that come up. Winning a prize is great in any circumstances, but winning a writing competition could get you a lot more than just money. Recognition can be everything for some people, and often it's that great feeling of achievement that can be worth more than the cash.
On this page I'll be trying to keep track of any cash prize writing contests that I come across. They're listed further below. If you know of any writing contests you'd like noted on this page please feel free to mail me and let me know the details. Contact details are on the about page.
Before we get to the list of open competitions, it's worth taking a look at the video below. It's a fairly basic video consisting almost entirely of slides, but does offer some useful starter tips. Who knows, it may just contribute in some small way to your winning a hotly contested writing prize at some point.
For the latest list of writing contests it's worth checking out the AllVoices roundup.
