  1. So this in more like a raffle. I pay you a set amount of money for a chance to win a potential amount of something? Clever, but no thanks.

    This in not about the elevation of writing, this is about making you money.

    Where do you see that the deadline has been extended? The website is still showing a deadline of May 3rd.

    Thanks Celise. The WD competitions dept announced the extension. I let them know that the site is still showing the May 3rd deadline. This should be updated soon. If anyone is interested in entering I’d say go ahead and submit your info (I’m sure they’re honoring submissions up until May 17).

    In response to Scott’s comment. Yes there is an entry fee… but that’s not uncommon in writing contests. And yes, Writer’s Digest does try to make money, just like any company. But, our mission is to help writers- it’s what our business is built upon. We have a range of contests some with an entry fee and some that are free to enter (check out the Your Story Contest, for example: As a writer that works as an editor for Writer’s Digest I pass along news about products and services that I think might be a help to some writers. It’s up to you to decide if it’s worth the cost that may be associated with it.

    Personally, I hope for all writers that they are careful about choosing the products/services/contests that they choose to purchase or enter. It’s all about thinking of your strategy for making your own success. Not everything anyone can tell you will be a perfect fit for your own path as a writer. I think the company I work for creates good products. I’m proud of that as an editor. I don’t think every product or service is for everyone… but that’s for writers to decide for themselves. As always, I wish you the best in all of your endeavors- writing related and otherwise.
