If you are interested in making money from your writing, as well as making your mark as an author, we run annual writing contests. They are open to writers of all ages and contestants can submit stories in all genres. The contests are divided into two categories as follows:
Children’s stories. This contest is open to children below sixteen years old. They must submit stories of at least 1,000 words and the story can be in any genre. Only one entry per contestant will be accepted; subsequent entries will be disqualified.
The entries must be submitted along with a completed entry form (you can download it from our site) with the signature of a parent or guardian and certifying that the story is original. Contest winners grant certain rights to their winning material to the organizers of the contest. Entries without a fully completed and legible entry form will not be qualified for the contest.
The prizes at stake include 100 USD (first place), 50 USD (second place) and 20 USD (third place).
Adult’s stories. This category is open to writers sixteen years old and above. They must submit stories of at least 20,000 words, and which can be in any genre they choose.
