Upcoming Contest Deadlines

Sorry I haven't posted in a few days. I've been under the weather, but I'm feeling better today and hope to get some writing done. We're supposed to get a snow storm later this evening, so I'm going to bundle up and try to keep warm by generating heat on my keyboard.

If you're looking for a helpful writing resource, Poets & Writers on-line magazine is an excellent one to check out.

One useful feature is the database of contest deadlines. This latest database includes contests for poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, and nonfiction. Deadlines shown on the link above land between January 25 and February 11. Entry fees range from None to $50. Some contests have specific residency requirements, but most are open to all. A few contest entry fees include magazine subscriptions to contest entrants.

So, if you're looking for a home for your poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, or nonfiction, check out Poets & Writers.


  1. Thanks for the heads up. That's one I haven't visited yet! Hope you feel better soon.

  2. Hi Lisa,
    You are welcome. I am feeling better, thanks.

  3. Thanks for your kind note on my blog. I like Poets & Writers so I will check out the online site. Hope you feel better and will picture you with sparks flying off your keyboard!

  4. For all the resolutions I've read about writers doing more writing, my writing has fallen off the map. My blog entries are getting more attention but outside that box blows a quiet, dusty wind. Not sure when inspiration will hit but I'm keeping tabs on these writing items, thanks.

  5. Thanks for the link. I'll be sure to check it out. Meanwhile, hope you're feeling much better soon!


  6. Hi Melissa,
    You are welcome. I love the quote on your blog.

    Hi Sally,
    When inspiration hits you'll be ready!

    Hi Pat,
    Thanks. I'm much better today.


  7. Thanks for the info! Stay healthy and warm. We're expecting a storm here and I just realized I'm out of chocolate. D'oh!

  8. I'm glad you're feeling better, Donna.
