I've decided to post a blog with the numerous contests I find around DA. Not all of them will be literature contests, as some people are good with other aspects of art. I feel it's important for the word to be spread about contests.

If you:

  • are holding your own contest

  • find a contest through a group you are a member of/watch

  • find a contest through a deviant you watch


and you think it should be advertised, send a note to me at Contests-R-Us. Please include the following in your note:

  • the name of the person or group holding the contest

  • a brief (less than 100 words) description of the contest

  • the deadline

  • a link to the journal or news article where all information can be found
