Markets For Writers

Having a bit of a blogging break well trying to! But couldn’t resist reblogging this opportunity to enter a writing competition. This one sounds pretty darn awesome, with the prompt coming from Stephen King! Competition suggestion via Sacha Black, reblog from Esthernewton’s blog. Closing date for entries December 18th.

This week’s market comes courtesy of the wonderful Sacha Black. She’s spotted an excellent competition that’s a must enter. It’s the ‘Stephen King – The Bazaar of Bad Dreams competition’.

The competition is calling for entries for a fiction story of up to 4,000 words. The story must be on a subject inspired by the following line from Stephen King: “There’s something to be said for a shorter, more intense experience. It can be invigorating, sometimes even shocking, like a waltz with a stranger you will never see again, or a kiss in the dark, or a beautiful curio for sale at a street bazaar.”

The closing date for entries is December 18th 2015.

The prize is publication, plus a place on a Guardian weekend Masterclass with Stephen King’s UK editor, Philippa Pride.

To find out more about how to enter, check the terms and conditions page.

About Marje @ Kyrosmagica

Hi. Welcome to my blog, Kyrosmagica. A blog about magic, books, writing, laughter, and much more! I'm a debut writer in the process of finishing my first YA fantasy novel, set in Cambridge. I write book reviews on Net Galley and Goodreads. I have a penchant for travel and have relatives in far flung places, Australia, Malaysia, and Singapore, (my birthplace.) I grew up in in Bonnie Scotland, in Edinburgh, and now live in Cambridge. I love sunny, hot places, particularly Rome, Venice, Portugal, Barcelona, and I forgot to mention the sun drenched beaches of the Caribbean, how could I? I am lucky to have been blessed with two lovely daughters and a husband who I fondly refer to in this blog as my black sheep. Family joke! With my passion for travel, culture, beautiful beaches, good food, books, theatre, writing, and humour, I hope to keep you entertained. I'm loving every minute of this creative journey, please join me.
