writing for children and contests,
We constantly hear from editors that the vast majority of the manuscripts they receive are rejected because they were not written to the editor’s specifications. Few editors will consider a story or article that does not meet their specs—precisely.
Writing contests also have exact specifications. That’s why we encourage writers—all writers, new ones and old pros too—to enter contests. They’re excellent professional training experiences and, if you win, they can get you published and pay healthy prize money.
The winners in this contest will be published in Children’s Writer, the monthly 12-page+ emailed newsletter that goes to almost 1,300 children’s book and magazine editors in North America. Along with the winning entry, we’ll publish an article about the top-ranked entries and their authors. There are also cash prizes. The cash prizes alone are good reasons to write a piece and enter.
Entries must be received by July 12, 2013. The first contest entry is free to Children’s Writer subscribers who include their account number on page one of their manuscript. All others pay an entry fee of $15, which includes an 8-month subscription. Winners will be announced in the October 2013 issue. Prizes: $500 for first place plus publication in Children’s Writer, $250 for second place, and $100 for third, fourth, and fifth places.
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 Kindergarten Story!
