For the creative writer planning towards maximizing more rewarding opportunities for his/her works in any literary tradition and as early as the year’s early sunrise, here’s some good news! The Scotland-based, reputable Almond Press has released a long list of its known creative writing competitions of 2016.
In a release on its website, Almond Press states that the curated list is not to be considered completely exhaustive as the list continues to be updated with newly scheduled or known events through the year. Moreover, the organization opens suggestions of any other creative writing competitions not included in the list to the public via a stipulated form on its website for the purpose.
As expected, the creative writing competitions cuts across different traditions and genre-writing categories, and from to Sci-Fi writing, to medical Sci-Fi, to Ad-hoc Fiction, and more. The list also stipulates such details as entry fee, winner’s prize, award-giving body, and scope of the prize contest (say, international or country-based). The country-based contests in the list are, however, still on the United States and United Kingdom.
