    I'm just wondering if anyone here has ever entered a writing contest and if so...which ones?  Was there an entry fee?  Was publication offered as a prize or not?

    I'm looking into writing contest's, but don't really like the idea of an entry fee...unless I can't find a contest without one!  hmm

      One good example is Writers Digest, which is a leading publication, and their contest has been around for a long time. They do have entry fees, cash prizes, and the top prize is a trip to connect with NY agents and publishers.

      The real question you should be asking yourself about, maybe, is not free or not; but whether or not the contest is reputable. Otherwise, winning won't do you much good.

        That's true and what I was trying to get at...how do I find reputable contests?


        I'll see if I can find Writers Digest - thanks. smile

          Entry fees are not in themselves suspect. I suggest you check out Writers Beware for some guidelines on what is reputable:
