I entered my first writing contest. It’s nothing major, but it’s a start! I’ve found a few writing contests online that are free to enter.
The first doesn’t come with any monetary compensation, but the thrill of being able to say “I won _______ writing contest” is more than enough for me.
The second site offers minimal payment ($20 for fiction/$10 for non), but they will publish the winners in a quarterly magazine. Again…I’m going for prestige here.
