A good way to progress in your writing career is to enter writing contests. A writing contest will showcase your writing and possibly open doors of publication if you place in the contest.
Most writing contests offer publication to the winner, and many even offer monetary rewards. Most of all, writing contests place your work before editors who may offer you an assignment even if you don’t place.
Below are a few websites providing information on writing contests. Choose a few and enter. You may just win! 🙂
