Daily Writing Tips is one of the many blogs to which I subscribe. Today they announced a short story writing competition. It appears that the contest is open to anyone over the age of 13. All short stories must be less than 1,000 words. All entries must be in January 4th. Nominated pieces will be posted on Daily Writing Tips and readers will vote. The winner of the competition receives a full license to the executive edition of White Smoke writing and editing software ($310 value).

Applications for Education
This writing contest could provide a sizable real world audience for a high school student or possibly a middle school student. Yes, there are many writing contest specifically for students, but what I like about this contest is that if a student’s work was nominated he or she will instantly reach the more than 6500 subscribers to Daily Writing Tips.
