Writers-Editors Network Writing Contest

I have a rule about trying one writing contest a month. Although, I don’t always find one that’s worthwhile. (Guess that “one contest a month” is technically not a rule, huh?)

BUT, here’s a contest that I think is worthwhile and reputable (even if they’ve gone and changed the name). It’s the 2009 Writers-Editors Network 26th Annual International Writing Competition (formerly CNW/FFWA Florida State Writing Competition). Now you see why I didn’t put the whole title in the post title.

And if you think the name of the title is long, you should see the guidelines/info. So, I’m just going to give you the gist and you can go check out all the added whatnot here.

The contest has several categories I could enter, but what interests me the most is the children’s category.  It’s technically called the Children’s Literature Division: Unpublished or self-published Short Story/Article/Book Chapter/Poem (all in one category).

The entry fee is $10.00 for non-members as long as the entry is under 3,000 words.  That’s in my financial comfort zone. Now, I just need to decide whether to send my book chapter or a short story. Or I suppose I could send an article, too. As long as I send something in by March 15, 2009.

That’s just a few weeks away. I better start writing. And finish reading those guidelines. I have a rule about reading contest guidelines very carefully (and that’s one rule I do follow!).

  1. Cathy,
    I like that idea of trying one contest a month. I am going to write that down and think about doing that too. Do you have a couple good resources where you look for contests, besides PG of course? 🙂

    Thanks,
    Margo

  2. Hi Margo,

    I wish I could remember my sources! When my computer got bugged, I lost all of my bookmarks! BUT, I do check my previous years’ logs for contests I’ve tried (and notes about contests I didn’t quite get around to submitting). And eventually, I’ll find all those sites that I had bookmarked 🙂

    P.S. Good luck with the contest you pick!
