    This is cool! The most bang for my buck I’ve thought about with competitions is whether they offer advice. However prize money is definitely something to consider against the entry fee!

      Interesting – I usually look for advice and feedback from writer friends and acquaintances, so I guess that hasn’t been a consideration for me when submitting to comps. But high entry fees and low prizes really bug me!!

  3. I’m going to take this as a sign to get my shit together and enter some of these. I also came across this one yesterday. It’s free to enter and only 750 words. I can’t imagine the money is huge but might be worth checking out: http://www.outstandingstories.net/

      I didn’t know you were a writer! (other than about sport, obvs) Yes, do it. There are loads of great opportunities out there and the sooner you start, the sooner you’ll succeed 🙂
