Second prize in a local writing contest was the first public recognition of my writing. That experience gave me confidence to write and later to edit. The contests on this site might do the same for you.
In most writing contests, only a few people will win. On this web site, everyone is a winner.
First place prize is your choice of
EITHER $50.00 CDN
OR a credit of $50.00 CDN ($35.00 US) on future editing.
All entrants receive a 100-word critique of their piece.NOTE: Since one of my own specialties is writing for children, all contests can include pieces written for either children or adults.Prize-winning entries are posted on this site.
