The Literary Nest is a labor of love for a struggling writer and a literary connoisseur, but I believe that the writers should be paid. The idea of this contest was born in that spirit. So here it goes.
The Literary Nest announces the Inaugural Writing Contest with cash prizes.
Fiction: 1,500-5,000 words
Poetry: 10-40 lines.
Please submit your entry with “Contest” in the subject line to firstname.lastname@example.org by March15, 2015.
No erotica and nothing rated R or above.
One winning entry in each category will receive the cash prize of $10. The rest of the entries will be eligible for the publication.
