Writing Markets and Free Writing Competitions

I hope this new month, August, is a whole new month of writing and earning for you.

I've been busy working on my second book in my new Monthly Writing Challenge Series, which is all about setting up a niche website in a month AND earning money from it.

I've also compiled this list for you of current writing markets and a couple of free-to-enter writing competitions to get your creative juices flowing.

Have fun.
