Hey writers,

I’ll be sharing any great resources I find on Dear Writer. We’d all love to be getting our work out there, but it’s hard to keep track of writing contests and submission deadlines.

Today I want to introduce you to CompsandCalls.com. It’s a free website that provides a monthly list of free-to-enter writing competitions, contests, and calls for submission for all genres in one spot.

I connected with its creator, Cathy Bryant in 2015, and the service she provides writers is amazing.

Here’s a little bit about Comps and Calls.

Tired of being expected to buy litmags and pay submission fees just to have your work considered? Can’t afford to pay hefty writing competition fees? Don’t have time to rally thousands of Facetwit followers to vote for your story or poem? Then spend some time here, browsing my listings of free-to-enter writing competitions and calls for submission, all of which can be entered online and not via post/mail!

The listings are updated on the first of every month, with the odd top-up in between. Subscribe here.

Cathy prepares these massive lists herself. It’s a huge time-saver for writers so if you enjoy using this great resource, be sure to leave her a PayPal tip or become a member of Cathy’s Patreon.

Don’t forget to follow Comps and Calls on Facebook and Twitter.

And get Cathy’s book, How To Win Writing Competitions (and Make Money), on Amazon US and Amazon UK.

Don’t forget to enter your 1000-5000 word
flash fiction or short story to our contest.

Ends at 12:pm CST tonight!!!
