Writing Contests  

I love submitting to writing contests as much as I love running them! This is why I want to share some of the contests I am working on submissions for. I am not affiliated in any way with these competitions. If you have a contest you'd like to share with our community send me an email with all of the info you see below to: hello@sadietellsstories.ca
