Writing contests – 2014

Writing contests can be a terrific way to get your manuscript seen by those in the publishing biz. Often, prizes include publication.

If you do choose a contest with an entry fee, make sure that the prizes warrant the fee charged.

Here’s a short list to get you inspired:

Summer Writing Retreats and Workshops

Spring has finally arrived and with it comes the anticipation of those wonderful long sunny days of summer.  Writing outside is one of my favorite summer activities.  I’m inspired by the fresh smell of the wind, the sun on my face and the extra hours of daylight.

Thinking about taking a writing vacation this summer?  Somewhere where you can do nothing but write?

Here are a few great resources:
