It’s summer, which means it’s time for the semiannual update for our Guide to No-Cost Literary Contests and Competitions. I’ve gone through the e-book once again, weeding out “dead” programs as well as those that are now charging reading/application/entry fees. And I’ve still managed to add a net gain of 18 opportunities! As usual, none of them are limited to the residents of a single state or province (I could have included those and upped the total number of competitions, but that wouldn’t have made the guide as valuable for all of you). And I think 239 contests/competitions is still pretty good.
There are opportunities here in every genre, for writers at every level. Check it out here, and download the free preview (with sample listings).
