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 Some of them are out of date, but it’s proving useful.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:






BBC Writers’ Room


A list of short story magazines from Christopher Fielden’s blog


Moniack Mhor (Scotland’s Writing Centre)




National Centre for Writing (Norwich)


NAWE’s Writers’ Compass


Neon Books


New Writing East Midlands


New Writing West Midlands


New Writing North


New Writing South


Scottish Book Trust


Thresholds – now out of date but still a good resource while it remains online.


Tŷ Newydd – The National Writing Centre of Wales


The Writers’ and Artists’ Yearbook website
