Friday Findings – Contests Galore!
Hi everyone! I’m starting some new things on my blog, and trying to get it just a little more polished, so you may notice a few things moving around this weekend. This is just so you know ahead of time :). On Saturday, I’ll make a post explaining all the new(ish) things, and also what’s coming up for the month of February!
I’ll tell you a bit about this post, though. From now on (at least most of the time), Friday posts are going to be “Friday Findings”. These will consist of things that I find throughout the week that I think will be of interest to you! This time, I have a lot of contests. Next time, it may just be a bunch of stuff I found on Pinterest. We’ll see 😀
Okay, contest time!
First up is the “Month of Romance” contest by Sapphire Star Publishing. They are a new publishing house, but they accept all genres! This month they’re running a contest, and the grand prize is a Kindle Fire and a publishing contract! See their website for full details :).
Next is the Emerging Writer’s Contest, presented by Ploughshares! The prize for this is $1,000. That would pay for a lot of things . . . like chiropractor visits, lol. But seriously, go check it out. Submissions are accepted until April 2nd.
Last, but not least, is a contest close to me. Literally. I’ve been meaning to go to the conference that Nimrod puts on for the past four years, but have yet to make it. If I remember to something for the Nimrod Literary Awards, perhaps I’ll remember the conference before I make other commitments! This one is a $2,000 prize for first place, and $1,000 for second, and publication is included in both those placings. Deadline is April 30th. Website is here.
And one last thing – a freebie!
This is only free for the remainder of the day, but it looks like a very interesting plot to me, and I’m willing to give an author a chance at least once!
So, here you go:
Have a great day, everyone!
