Short Story Contests: November

In Writing on October 29, 2012 at 4:09 pm

Another month, another list of short story contests for you to try your hand at. Even though it’s not exactly a short story contest, no November list would be complete without a mention of NaNoWriMo (That’s National Novel Writing Month for the uninitiated) — so there’s your obligatory mention.

Anyway, even if you’re doing NanoWriMo, these contests could be well worth your time if you’ve got a few shorter pieces prepared. Good luck everyone!

Good luck everyone!

At any rate, here are the one’s I’ve come up with. If you know of others, feel free to let me know, and, of course, if you’ve happened to win or place in any of the previous months’ contests I’d love to hear about it!
