Short Story and Poetry Contests: Consider Trying Your Hand at These Fiction Forms
John E. Murray, III just interviewed me about my novel MRS. LIEUTENANT for a future RamblingVerser podcast on his site Story Institute.
While checking out his site, I noticed that he’s having a poetry contest and a short story contest – both with deadlines of March 15. As it’s not so easy to find markets for poetry and short stories today, if you write this type of fiction check out the site while you have time to submit to the contests.
And if you’ve never tried your hand at poetry or short stories before, it’s never too late to take up a new creative pursuit. There’s even a section on this site with “ideas and suggestions for short stories, poems, and writing tips”.
