One of the best ways to gain credibility as a writer and build your writing resume (especially if your publishing credentials are currently thin) is to win a credible writing competition. And right now, through Writer’s Digest you can do that with just 1,500 words of fiction.
That’s right—Just 1,500 words! Here’s how:
It’s time to enter our 16th Annual Short Short Writing Competition. Whether it’s a story you’ve been working on for years or one you write tonight, all you need is a short work of fiction that is 1,500 words or fewer to submit it right away. It’s that easy. Prizes for the winner of this competition include:
- $3,000 in cash
- Your short story title published in Writer’s Digest magazine’s July/August 2016 issue
- A paid trip to the ever-popular Writer’s Digest Conference (where I’d love to meet you)!
- A copy of the 16th Annual Writer’s Digest Short Short Story Competition Collection
- A copy of the 2016 Novel & Short Story Writer’s Market
- And more!
Plus, all entrants will receive access to our February 23, 2016, webinar “Short Story to Story Collection: How to Craft a Collection of Short Fiction That Gets Published and Sells,” a $49 value at no extra cost.
I’ve helped judge this competition for years and, I admit, it’s one of my favorites to read through. Being able to write a good short (short) story can be a challenge, but if you have a fun idea and run with it, who knows what can happen. But you can’t win unless you enter. The deadline for this competition is January 15, 2016, so enter now before it’s too late!
Take care of yourself and your writing,
