January & February 2019 Writing Submissions [Writing Contests]

As always, I whip up a blog post at the beginning of the month to share some writing contests or general submissions with deadlines for the current month and the next month. Here are some January & February 2019 writing submissions. I try to find submissions with no fee or at least a fee on the cheaper side, though that’s difficult sometimes. Regardless, if you know of any that I’ve missed, feel free to let me know in the comments and I’ll add it to the list.
