Writing Conferences, Competitions, and more

There will be a lot going on in the writing world this spring. So without further ado, here's the latest international writing round-up.

The Zurich Writers Workshop will be announcing its spring writing conference next week. To be the first to find out the details, join the mailing list.

The Bridport Prize, an international creative writing competition for poetry, short stories, and flash fiction is now open for entries.

The American Women’s Club of Zurich will be hosting a workshop week from March 21-26 and Writer Abroad will be teaching a two-hour seminar on, what else, How to Make a Living as a Writer Abroad. The class will be held on Saturday, March 26 from 10:30-12:30. Stay tuned for registration details.

Brighton Cow (COW stands for "community of writers") will run four short story competitions in 2011. The next deadline is the end of February. Entries cost 4 pounds.

If you’re interested in how to go pro as a blogger, Writer Abroad was interviewed in the article Expat Bloggers are Going Pro over on Expat Women.

Writer Jenny Rough posts personal essay markets on the final Friday of every month on her blog, Roughly Speaking.
