Submissions and Contests

Posted on

Happy Wednesday, everybody!

Today, I thought that I would share with you a few places that I’m planning on submitting. I figure some of you may be interested in this, and others may want to submit to these calls and contests as well. If you don’t already know about the website [places for writers], I definitely suggest you check it out. It is a website that posts open calls for submissions and contests. They’ve pointed me to the most obscure projects, but also helped me get published for the first time.
