Writing Contests

In this course, you are required to submit for publication.  Don't be scared or nervous.  Everything you have done to develop yourself as a writer will come into play as you use the world as your platform to express yourself.  This is a critical skill moving forward.
 
TIPS:  
Most competitions are looking for creativity, age-appropriate language, sensory details, figurative images, structure, and poetic techniques.  ALWAYS analyze the criteria for the competition before you begin your process.  GOOD LUCK!
