BookRix Free Writing Contests in April

BookRix has three exciting writing competitions starting or running in April so hopefully you have your writing cap on and you’re ready to go! As always, the BookRix writing contests are free to enter! Don’t miss your chance at the great prizes offered and the bragging rights to say you’ve placed as a winner or top finalist in an online writing contest!

1)      We all know the Dear Diary Writing Contest has started so make sure to get your entries in and vote by April 14.

2)      You’ve probably thought about how the world might end at some point in your life, especially with all the events in recent months. Why not put your thoughts down into a book and submit it to the free BookRix End of the World Writing Contest? You could win one of our three fabulous cash prizes!

First place prize: $600, Second place prize: $400, Third place prize: $200

There are so many ways our world could end – in the fiery heat of a solar explosion, run over by a zombie epidemic, struck off by a large meteor or caused by a physics experiment gone wrong! Maybe the phrase “end of the world” has a more personal meaning for you – the end of your world might be because of a job loss or a death of a loved one. Let your imagination and your words run free with this contest!

This contest will run from April 22 (Earth Day!) until June 10, 2011, so there’s lots of time to write, submit and vote! Please check back to our Contests & More page for more complete details.

3)      In one week, the next writing challenge, Write from an Animal’s Perspective, will begin! Get your ideas ready to post when the writing challenge entry thread opens in the I Love BookRix Writing Contests group on April 8. The submissions period runs from April 8 through April 20 and the voting by the community goes from April 21 through April 28.

The contest prizes are two $25 Amazon gift cards – one for each winning writer.  The top two most original animal writers are chosen by the BookRix community so be sure to make your animal crys heard  – um – we mean voices heard for your favorites!

    Just an FYI from an author that has made a lot of money in prizes: Bookrix has some of the best paying prizes in this industry and it doesn’t cost to enter. If you think you have any talent in this at all; you owe it to yourself and your future fans to enter as often as you can here and publish yourself. If you ever thought of writing as a potential career; I know of no better place to strut some of your best stuff and see how well it walks on its own and leanr how to polish it to a fine luster. You can learn technique here, but nobody can teach you “talent”. Here, you can find out if this is really any kind of talent to pursue with a purpose. If you can prove that to yourself here; you can market it reasonably out there. Really.

    I agree with you John Stormm. I found this site through Writer’s Digest, and I have been grateful for the support, opinions, honesty and compliments. It has given me the confidence to continue to write, try, edit, and try again. The contests challenge me to write on things otherwise I would not. Thank you BookRix!
