As a member of online writing group Betas & Bludgers, I update and add to our list of more than four hundred writing competitions. The spreadsheet was originally curated by the group's founder, writer, editor and workshop facilitator, Matt Kendrick.
Entering competitions has lent focus to my writing. It has also helped me forge links with the supportive online writing community.
Whether you are a seasoned author or are just starting out on your creative writing journey, there should be a competition on the list that is right for you.
