Where to Submit Roundup: January 12, 2024

41 Submission Opportunities including calls for submissions, writing contests, and book prizes.

Happy Friday! Hopefully if you are unfortunate to be in the throes of a winter storm you are able to stay safe, sound, warm, and dry indoors. Weather reports are saying that our neck of the woods can have anywhere from 6″ to 18″ of snow expected. It feels like it’s been a long time since we’ve seen so much.

If you do not have work or school today, NewPages is here to help you while away your free time and keep your submission goals going strong with our weekly roundup of submission opportunities for the second week of January 2024.

Don’t forget paid newsletter subscribers can get early access to the majority of submission opportunities and upcoming events before they go live on our site, so do consider subscribing or upgrading your subscription today. You also receive our monthly eLitPak Newsletter which features even more opportunities and other literary goodness and is set to hit inboxes next Wednesday.
