January & February 2019 Writing Submissions [Writing Contests] – Written By Rachel Poli

Thank you, Rachel Poli, for all your hard work in the past years – and of course in 2019, to keep us updated on the current writing contests. We appreciate all your efforts!


 

As always, I whip up a blog post at the beginning of the month to share some writing contests or general submissions with deadlines for the current month and the next month. Here are some January & February 2019 writing submissions. I try to find submissions with no fee or at least a fee on the cheaper side, though that’s difficult sometimes. Regardless, if you know of any that I’ve missed, feel free to let me know in the comments and I’ll add it to the list.
