The combination of summer and a garden can be dangerous to my work. Sorry about the long lapse! Now that I'm back on track, here is a good blog to watch for all things writing, including news about contests and markets: Work-in-Progress

Here is a frequently updated listing of writing contests. As of this posting it contains 164 poetry, fiction, nonfiction and script contests.


I was immediately intrigued by the concept of WordHustler when I read an article by one of the founders in one of the FundsforWriters newsletters. I'll let their own front page speak for them:

"With WordHustler, you can spend more time writing because we simplify, streamline, and organize the entire submission process for you. Not only that, we print and ship each manuscript, saving you time, inconvenience, and money!"

They also keep a database of over 3,000 literary markets that is completely free. Just scroll down to the bottom of the front page and click on the obvious link.

Anthologies Online

Interested in writing for anthologies? Here's a site that lists anthology "authors wanted" calls. Click on the "writers wanted" links in the middle of the page to get to the listings. You'll have to weed through the non-paying calls... but there are some that pay.

Nabbed this one off of PayingWriterJobs.
