2017 New Year Writing Goals: Get Organized and Seek Publishing Opportunities

If your New Year's writing goals include getting organized and seeking out publishing opportunities, here are two items that might be helpful:

The first comes from the Literautas blog, which offers a free download of a printable 2017 writer's calendar and/or writers' planner. The calendar and planner are easy to download, print, and use, especially if you like to hold a physical hard-copy planner to chart your writing progress.

The second is a reminder of the Rock Springs Review anthology contest, which includes an opportunity to win prize money and be included in the anthology. The contest seeks works of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry. Due to the New Year's holiday, RSR editor Judy Stock has extended the deadline by one day. For complete submission guidelines, e-mail Judy Stock at RockSpringsReview@gmail.com.

Wishing you and yours a joyous and prosperous New Year!

  1. Donna--Thanks for the reminder of the anthology. I just emailed Judy. As far as the writer's calendar, I am hopeless when it comes to organization.;)

    I hope your next year is full of acceptances and joy.

  8. I've discovered that the world of novel writing means that I don't seem to create much of anything else. I hope to do better in 2017!
