Online Writing Contests

Sunday, July 12, 2009

There are two kick-ass writers contests going on right now.

First off: Romance Junkies is holding their annual contest right now. They've changed it up a bit this year, the entries are first voted on in the RJ readers loop, then the top entries will be posted on the RJ site to be voted on by the general public. I think this change was implemented to discourage cheating and ballot-box stuffing. *sigh* We'll how well this works out.

For more info go here at the Romance Junkies blog and check it out. Top prize is a Netbook and winner is decided by TOR editor Heather Osborn. What are you waiting for? Go enter already!!

As for the second contest, I got the heads up on this one from Raine.

Jason Evan's Clarity of the Night is holding its annual contest. This year it's The Truth In Wine Short Story Contest. Check it out. I have in the past and there were always some amazing prose stylist entered (including the loverly Ms. Raine Weaver)

That's a nice prize for the Romance Junkies contest. Tempting. :)

And the Clarity of Night contest is great. A challenge to write, & more than one contestant has gone on to be print pubbed (Jaye Wells' hit "Stepchild" release had its origins there).

I'm not surprised that entrants in past Clarity of the Night have gone on to publish. I was very impressed by the level of talent in that contest.
