June/July Writing Contests

June July Contests

I found a good amount of writing contests the other day and thought it would be nice of me to share with you guys.

Normally I’ll post at the beginning of each month with the following month’s contests. That way I can give you guys a month’s notice before each deadline.

Since I just decided to do this, I’m going to post June’s contests as well. Some deadlines are pretty close, but maybe you’ll be able to whip something up quick. Or maybe you’ll already have something written collecting dust that fits the criteria pretty well.

There are prizes to each contests whether it’s money or a publication or what have you. I did not list them, though. You can go on the websites (click on the names of the place) and check it out for yourself. I included the entry fees only because some people not want to participate in contests if it’s not free.

Anyway, here are the contests for June and July 2015. Good luck if you decide to participate in any of these contests!
