Writing is a key part of our everyday lives. However, learning to write to a publication's specifications is the first hurdle all children's writers must learn. Entering contests helps writers hone their skills. Many editors, including us here at Stories for Children Publishing, LLC, repeatedly see manuscripts that do not match guidelines and specifications.
Stories for Children Publishing, LLC believes writing contests not only help hone writers' skills, but also help writers learn to follow the guidelines laid out by a publication. Writing contests have exact specifications to even be considered for judging—let alone to win. Contests are an excellent way for writers to practice following a publication's standards, guidelines, and specifications. Having a winning entry will not only look good when submitting to editors, but it will help get you published-that’s not to mention the pleasure of winning a prize such as a trophy or maybe even some extra money.
