Northampton, MA (PRWEB) May 5, 2006
Winning Writers is proud to announce it has been selected as one of the "101 Best Web Sites for Writers" for 2006 by Writer's Digest. This is the second year in a row Winning Writers has been so honored. The May 2006 issue of Writer's Digest reports, "Revamped and ready to lay it on the line, this site is a great place to check the validity of poetry contests or enter the site's own contest."
Winning Writers is today's leading source for poetry contest information. Our expert online database, Poetry Contest Insider, profiles over 750 poetry contests. To help poets choose which contests to enter, each contest is evaluated for its quality and prestige. Information about recent winners and current judges is provided whenever possible. No other contest guide offers such detailed, up-to-date information. Access is $6.95/quarter, with a free 10-day trial.
Winning Writers offers free to the public an email newsletter with news about free poetry contests and quality literary resources. Over 16,000 poets and writers subscribe. All subscribers enjoy free access to The Best Free Poetry Contests, an online database with profiles of over 150 quality free poetry contests.
Winning Writers sponsors two poetry contests of its own. Our fifth annual War Poetry Contest, open now through May 31, offers $3,000 in prizes. Our sixth annual Wergle Flomp Humor Poetry Contest, opening on August 15, offers $1,609 in prizes and is free to enter. These contests are both judged by the award-winning poet Jendi Reiter, editor of Winning Writers.
In addition to recognition from Writer's Digest, Winning Writers is proud to have received the Truly Useful Site Award from Preditors & Editors (March 2006). Says P&E, "These sites have proven not only useful or entertaining. They have also set a standard for other sites to aim for. We congratulate them on their achievements."
Winning Writers was founded in 2001 by Jendi Reiter and Adam Cohen. Our website was fully redesigned by EyeArchitect, experts in information architecture, and relaunched in December 2005. It is now one of the most sophisticated resources for poets and writers on the web. Learn more about Winning Writers at http://www.winningwriters.com/.
