My go-to websites for calls for submissions

Resources for writers

Sites I’ve found useful

I thought I’d list my go-to websites for calls for submissions etc. Pasted below. These are sites I find useful myself – please share any other ‘competition / round up’ sites you’ve found.

Aerogramme Writers Studio 

 

Almond Press list of writing opportunities

 

National Poetry Library – magazines

 

National Poetry Library – competitions

 

The Word Factory Monthly Round Up – http://www.thewordfactory.tv/site/4-19-news-opportunities-round-up/

 

The Writing Competitions website

 

Note: The Word Factory Round up is fab – so subscribe to their newsletter! You can change the date in the url to get the latest round up – i.e. 4-19 in this case. Sometimes the date format is different – there might be a 0 before the month for example. Or you can google ‘word factory news opportunities round up’. I created a calendar  of opportunities this way by changing the date, printing the results and putting them in a folder. Some of them are out of date, but it’s proving useful.

 

Here are some other websites that might come in handy if you’re in the UK:
