Five Markets/Contests for Writers and Authors

type-1161952_640

I thought I’d go with a different type of post for this one. When I was starting out as both an author and freelance writer I was always looking for markets and contests to enter so I thought I’d share this with you.

Here are details of markets and contests I’ve recently been sent information about and the others are ones I’ve found snooping around online-

 

Chicken Soup for the Soul

Chicken Soup for the Soul is always looking for stories for various books they’ll be publishing and here’s a list of their current topics-

Grandparents

Life Lessons from My Cat

Life Lessons from My Dog

More Messages from Heaven

Stories about Angels

Stories about Miracles

Stories about My Mom

Golden Years – Life After 60

Pockets

I’ve been published in this publication and also was a runner up in their contest and they have another one with a deadline that’s approaching. If you write for children this is an ideal market and/or contest-
