Writing Markets & Contests

College writers may feel that no one besides the instructor will ever read their writing and that, therefore, their writing doesn’t matter; however, as this blog is titled Writing Matters, I encourage you–and from time to time, I may even assign you–to submit the writing you do for our course to “real-world” markets or contests.
