Saturday Writers Writing Contest

I just wanted to spread the word about a great writing contest I learned about when visiting my buddy Becky Povich.

Saturday Writers is a chapter of the Missouri Writers' Guild, and the group is currently holding their 10th Annual Fictional Short Story Contest!

The contest is open to all writers, and all subjects or genres are welcome. The entry fee is $7 per story, and prizes are $100 for first place, $50 for second place, $25 for third place, and certificates for fourth through sixth place.

The deadline to enter is November 1, 2011, so there's plenty of time to get a story together and enter. You do have to send entries by snail mail, so you'll need to have your entry postmarked by the November 1st deadline. And if you have more than one story, you can enter up to three times.

The Saturday Writers work hard to encourage and support all writers, and this contest is a great chance to support them while also entering your work in a fun contest.

  3. That sounds wonderful. Are you going to enter? I've been checking into my local writers guild and they have a yearly contest too. Maybe I'll join. :)

  6. @Angela, you're welcome, I thought so too. :)

    @Mary, oh, I forgot to tweet it myself LOL. I swear I am so scatter-brained sometimes. Thanks!

    @Michelle, yeah, I think I am going to enter, I just have to get a story written! LOL I'm glad there is still time until the deadline. I don't think we have any writers guild around here, I've looked but haven't had any luck.

    @Becky, you're welcome, my pleasure! :)

  7. Thanks for the heads up! Have a great weekend, Julie.
