Writer’s Contests

The contest season is
well underway. Besides the ACFW or RWA contests, there are a host of others out
there. I decided to explore and see what I could find.  
The Bridport Prize is
for poems, short stories, and flash fiction. It’s out of England. Costs &
prizes are in pounds.
Poems:  42 lines maximum, no minimum
Short stories:  5000 words maximum, no minimum
fiction:  250 words maximum, no minimum
This site lists 23 short
story contests for 2016. Many of the listed contests are through newspapers
(like the Chicago Tribune) and other respected places.  http://www.aerogrammestudio.com/2015/12/01/short-story-competitions-in-2016/

Then have several of all kinds.
Here’s a cool site,

You can’t get more
respectable than Writer’s Digest. Here’s their competition info: http://www.writersdigest.com/writers-digest-competitions/annual-writing-competition
The same can be said for
The Writer Magazine. Here’s their contest: http://www.writermag.com/writing-resources/contests/
Have a good contest to
share with our readers? 
While a large, floppy straw hat is
her favorite, Ane has worn many different ones: legislative affairs director
(that’s a fancy name for a lobbyist), drama director, multi-published playwright,
humor columnist, and novelist. Her lifetime experience provides a plethora of
fodder for her Southern-fried fiction (try saying that three times fast). She
firmly believes coffee and chocolate are two of the four major food groups. Ane
resides in Sugar Hill, GA, with her artist husband, her chef son, and a mastiff
that thinks he’s people. You can find Ane on her Amazon author page, her Southern-fried Fiction website, Google+, Facebook, Goodreads, Twitter, and Pinterest.
