The 77th Annual Writer's Digest Writing Competition is now open for submissions. Top prize is $3000 and a trip to New York to meet with four editors or agents. There are ten categories for both fiction and nonfiction. The entry fee is $15 and the deadline to enter is May 15, 2008. All the details are online at

Patsy Pittman, contest chairman for WV Writers, won three honorable mentions last year for her short stories. Nancy Merical won 2nd place for her children’s fiction a couple of years ago. I won an honorable mention for a short story the last time I entered. So, it’s doable, folks. Give it your best shot.
