First Post: Summer and Writing Competitions!

Summer has finally arrived in my half of the world, and I’ve finally gotten a blog started! As I’ve had a lot of free time recently, I’ve made this blog so that I have a place to talk about all things reading and writing, sharing my journey with like-minded people in the process. For starters, here is a list of writing competitions for young people I’m planning to look into. These are open internationally and are valid June 2017 onwards. Disclaimer: read the details of any competition from the official website as it is the most reliable source to consult before applying. The Nuha Foundation http://www.nuhafoundation.org/home/bloggingprizes_english http://www.nuhafoundation.org/home/bloggingprizes_english/youth This competition is run by a charity organisation focused on developing education, NUHA. It’s giving young people the opportunity to respond to one of their writing prompts. I think I’ll be targeting the 140 USD prize (see details in the prizing section) Deadline: Sunday 15 October 2017 No Plag Scholarship Competition https://noplag.com/students-scholarship The first prize for this is pretty good at $3500, and it seems to be open to anyone 16 and above enrolled in a high school/university/college student. Deadline: June 25th so it’s practically passed, whoops. You can keep an eye out for it next year though!  Writers of the Future http://www.writersofthefuture.com/contest-rules-writers/ This is really well known from what I gather, and I’m looking forward to entering in the fourth quarter which starts from June till September 30.
