Reblog: 35 Writing Contests in September 2022 – No Entry Fees by Erica Verrillo

Want to help me get a new desk chair? Check out the details in the donation box below the post and read my stories on Vocal! A huge hug and a thank you to all of you who have already helped!

This September there are nearly three dozen free writing contests for short fiction, novels, poetry, CNF, nonfiction, and plays. Prizes range from $70,000 to publication. None charge entry fees. . . .

Publishing … and Other Forms of Insanity

It’s the end of August! Who would’ve thought? I don’t know about you, but this month seemed to go by really quickly…except for the last week, which has trickled on by like a sea of molasses.

With the start of September comes cooler weather, changing colours, all of those lovely pumpkin drinks and treats (who’s already had their first PSL of the season? 🙋🏻‍♀️), and writing contests! Even though they’re going on all throughout the year, what better time is there to enter your story into a competition? I don’t know about you, but the fall season gives my creativity a wonderful little boost.

At the link above, you can find an awesome list of 35 writing contests going on this next month – and the best part is that none of them has an entry fee! Check them out and see which ones you’re interested in entering. I know I’ve found a couple that I’m going to try for.

Happy writing!

My neck hurts, y’all. Even though I’m careful to maintain good posture while working at my desk, my current desk chair simply doesn’t provide me with the support I need – but good desk chairs are expensive, and that’s why I need your help! Thank you so much for your support that allows me to keep producing free content. God bless you! ♥️ E.J.
