As always, it pays to spend some time researching your options. We’re including some helpful links below to get you started.
Writer’s Digest Contests – There are a number listed on their site, with a wide range of deadlines.
Poets and Writers – this is a long list, but may be worth searching for opportunities.
We’re pleased to be a partner member in this group, which offers outstanding advice and information about all aspects of independent publishing.
If you’re in Oregon, Willamette Writers is a great resource for writing inspiration and more.

This group operates throughout the Northwest, and has a helpful list of editors and their specialties. We even had our first meeting in Eugene recently, and hope to continue, so stay tuned for more news.
