This one is for flash fiction on the theme of 'start'. The second is for a short story with the theme of 'Full Stop'. There are also paid for competitions listed on the site.
You can see the results from this year's free entry competitions here. (I was shortlisted in the twins one)
Here's an ongoing contest with a $50 prize each month. The current theme is 'Artist's Choice'.
Poets might like to try here or here or even here for a chance to win £100 (actually that last one also includes a competition with a £1,000 prize)
Do you know how to do something? Can you explain it in 300 - 500 words? If so you might be able to earn yourself £100.
If you live in the US, pop along to Clarissa's blog as she's giving away real books.
I have a short piece up on Cafelit which I wrote for an exercise in my writer's group. You can read it, for free, here.
And thanks to Teresa who has awarded me a star to add to my blog of the year award. It's looking really sparkly now.
