 My general advice about contests is to enter a few a year, just for kicks, but don’t expect anything.  In fact, best to submit and forget.  The odds are not in your favor.  That being said, look for contests that give a free subscription with your entry fee, like Narrative or Indiana Review.  Look at the judges — do you like their work?  If not, they might not like yours.  Also look at the prizes.  If the prize is $100 and the entry fee is $20, it’s probably not worth it.

As I was combing through various writing magazines, I came across the following contests that jumped out at me for their craziness, their coolness, and, sometimes, for their cost-effectiveness.  Be sure to read all the details carefully on the websites.  These are my descriptions, not theirs.
