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.
