The rewards are publication in Children’s Writer,
cash prizes, winners’ certificates, and valuable
training in disciplined writing.
If you like writing for children and
contests, read on . .
Writing to an editor’s specifications is the first hurdle that any writer must clear on the track to publication.Yet we hear repeatedly from editors that the majority of manuscripts they receive do not match their guidelines and specifications.
That’s a huge waste of time and energy for both writers and editors.
Writing contests also have exact specifications, and that’s why we encourage all writers to enter contests as often as they can. Contests are excellent professional training experiences.
The contest offers five cash prizes: $500 for the winner, $250 for second place, and $100 for third, fourth, and fifth places. These alone are a lot of good reasons to write and enter.
The contest rules are important. Please read them carefully.
Note the deadline! Be sure to get your entry in on time.
Now warm up your computer and write a $500-winning poem or verse story!
