It’s Kay Snow time again!

There’s still time to fix up some poetry, a short story, an essay, screenplay, or the opening of your current novel and enter The Kay Snow Writing competition. This annual contest awards one first prize of $300, one second place prize of $150, and a third place prize of $50 per winning entry in each of the five categories; fiction, nonfiction, juvenile, poetry, and screenwriting. Also, student writers are awarded $50 for first place in three grade divisions, $20 for second place, and $10 for third place. The deadline is April 23. Before I broke in as a novelist, I won second place in poetry (in the 90s) and first place in writing for a YA audience (about a decade ago) and it was not only good for my self-esteem, it was something to put in my query letter that helped get my agent’s attention.  And the entry fees are reasonable. So go check out the Kay Snows at:
