Contests and Markets to Start 2021
New Policy: During the last quarter I kept adding opportunities—especially in November and a few times in December.
I plan to keep doing that and as I get into the habit, I’ll post more. I’ll often announce when I’ve added something on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/writeradvice. Newest information will always be at the top of the page. Feel free to check this page often if you are looking for places to publish. For that matter, feel free to “Like” it and share it with your writing peers.
NOTE: If you’d like me to include an opportunity for writers to submit their work, please send me the name of the organization, the URL or contact e-mail, and the deadline. If you’d like to post about Writer Advice Contests as reciprocation, we’d be honored. Contest expectations are listed on our Guidelines page.
Here are some new opportunities. Look at the pages to find out what they are seeking. More will be posted soon:
