There aren't many writing contests that can brag about longevity, but the 79th Annual Writer’s Digest Competition is an exception.
With a deadline of May 14, 2010, this may be a competition you should enter, especially since they give away more than $30,000 in cash and prizes including a trip to New York City to meet with editors or agents.
Check out the various categories and respective requirements on the website.
Someone has to win. Maybe it will be you.
