Read This If You Want To Be A Great Writer

A regularly updated post with all the submission/application/prizes and other opportunities that I’ve found in my travels around social media and have been sent to me.

When an opportunity has passed I will remove it from the list to not clog it up with old news.

I know that it isn’t that big right now but we have to start somewhere!

This post is going to be free for a while but will eventually only be available to paid subscribers.

Time limited opportunities.
