For such a short month, February certainly delivers when it comes to writing contests. There are no fewer than 54 free contests this month.
As always, every form and genre is represented. There are prizes for novel manuscripts, poetry, short stories, essays, works of nonfiction, children’s books and more. Some of these contests have age and regional restrictions, so be sure to check submission guidelines before submitting.
Many contests are offered annually, so if you miss your ideal contest this year, you can always enter next year.
