And Yet Another No-Cost Contest!
Hurry up and pay attention to this one (the information will only be posted on the public part of the WritersMarket.com Web site until September 14).
Writer’s Market is running a Freelance Writing Success Stories Contest. They’re looking for true, first-person success stories “on some aspect of freelance writing success, whether it’s your first byline, the crazy things you went through to secure a book quote, or how you were able to get exclusive access to an interview subject.”
Prizes include a $250 contract to have the story published in the 2008 Writer’s Market (first place); a $150 contract to have the story published in the 2008 Writer’s Market (second place); and a $100 contract to have the story published in the 2008 Writer’s Market (third place).
Submission deadline (submit via e-mail to writersmarket(at)fwpubs(dot)com): December 1, 2006. There’s NO ENTRY FEE.
Unpublished stories only, says Writer’s Market editor Robert Lee Brewer (via e-mail).
