30 Writing Competitions With Cash Prizes

Thank you very much Sacha Black, for publishing these competitions!

30 FlashThis post is a cheat, partly because I’m exhausted after having thrown a surprise party for the wife’s 30th. But also because I happen to be in the midst of a significant bout of procrastination all because I am wallowing in a deep, deep pit of writerly self loathing.

So this week instead of my wordy bullshit, I bring you more writing competitions than you can shake a shakespearian cat at.

With any competition, it’s advisable to ensure you rake the rules of each one with your finest, slickest rule finding comb. I have not displayed the rules of any of these competitions, so if you don’t check, don’t expect to win.

This week’s market is more of a resource for writers – an enormous thank you to Les Moriarty for letting me know about this. Almond Press have compiled a list of creative writing competitions for 2016. From the Reader’s Digest 100 word competition, to a playwriting contest, to a novel writing competition, there’s something for everyone.

If you miss one, then there’s bound to be another you can enter, with competitions listed the year through.
