The aim of the competition is to encourage and promote the development of high-quality teaching case material relevant for the realities of dynamic and emerging economies, and at the same time promote the development of case-writing capabilities in those countries. In the spirit of a fully inclusive competition, global submissions are encouraged. The co-organizers will support global exposure of the submitted high-quality cases through a direct link with the Emerald Emerging Markets Case Studies collection.

Writing competitions can jumpstart a career. I'll never forget the thrill of excitement I felt when they contacted me with the news that I was one of six hundred writers invited to submit an entire novel manuscript. I decided then that if my manuscript went further in the writing contest, I'd use that honour to find an agent, and I began my research.

When I learned that the shortlist of five novels included mine, I contacted the agent I most wanted to represent me, and she signed me and had a publisher interested within two weeks.

What an exciting time! If I won the contest, McClelland and Stewart would publish my novel and I would receive an advance on royalties.

If I went no further than the shortlist, HarperCollins would publish the novel and I would receive a larger advance on royalties. The way I saw it, I couldn't lose! I did not win the contest, but I won a career all the same.

So I encourage you to seek out creative writing contests and send only your best, most polished work, as winning means publication and often significant payment. I publish this list of creative writing contests as a service to visitors.

It takes considerable time even to keep it current, so please do not write to ask me questions about any of the contests. If you have questions, please contact the organizer of the contest. If you want to be aware of writing contests all year, well in advance, consider purchasing the book Writing to Win by Moira Allen, which is one of the most complete sources of which I am aware.Almond Press / Writing Competitions and Contests We would like to share with you our curated list of creative writing competitions.

CLOSED. Whether you’re a professional writer, a part-time freelancer or a self-starting student, here’s your chance to enter the premier self-published competition exclusively for self-published books.

Writing contests let you express your creativity while winning great prizes. Writing contests have less competition than random-draw sweepstakes, making your odds of winning higher.

Try your hand at winning with this list of current creative writing contests to enter. Recently we were excited to learn that an Australian Writers’ Centre graduate had taken out the top prize in a local writing competition, pocketing herself a cool $ for what was only the second story she'd ever written!
