Financial Resources for Authors

If you haven’t seen C. Hope Clark’s Funds for Writers website, you’re missing out. The site and newsletter has a huge number of opportunities ranging from paying markets to contests. Hope vets everything to make sure writers are heading for a good place when they click a link.

Another great source for contests, grants and awards is Winning Writers. Jendi Reiter pulls together trusted resources, and offered this description:

“Founded in 2001, Winning Writers discovers the best contests, markets, and resources for creative writers. Our free monthly e-newsletter includes upcoming deadlines, literary comics, and links to our subscribers’ recent awards and publications.”

For authors working with Kindle, Kindlepreneur posts articles listing the best contests they’ve vetted for their members.

Don’t forget that Geminga, a contest offering $250 plus publication to a winning author, poet, or artist for a $5 entry fee, closes March 31.
