Byline - by and for writers!

Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Upbeat, Encouraging

Cons:Single issue price is high ($4)

Looking for writing contests? Try Byline. A monthly magazine designed to encourage and instruct writers, Byline devotes their inside, front cover page each issue to their numerous writing contests. Do you have a "stormy" or "blue" poem in you? How about a humorous poem? Perhaps a "short short story" (up to 2,000 words) is your forte. Entry fees range from $3-5 and 3 prizes are awarded in each contest ($10-$75). I haven't won a cash prize yet but my 2 "honorable mentions" were published elsewhere.
Oh yes, the content of the magazine is worth your time as well. Feature articles (open to freelancers) and regular columnists provide good technical insight into the writing trade. The 'Poetic Life' offers space for budding poets, 'First $ales' are brief submissions about a writer's initial success in the writing market and each month features both a short story and an 'End Piece' essay pertaining to writing (another area open for submissions). The 'End Pieces' are generally exceptional as is the 'Non-fiction' column by veteran writer Marshall Cook. And, oh yes, the 'Markets' Column has already helped pay the price of my last subscription!
Two quirks of Byline. One, they publish monthly, 11 times a year (they combine their July/August issue). Second, subscription price is $22 a year, $39 for two years. Last renewal, I was offered a lifetime subscription for $150. I'm not sure if that's a standing offer but if I can make 70, that would be about $6 or $7 per year for me! Can you beat that?
