Where to Submit Round-up: March 2022 Week 4

How is it officially the last full week of March already? I am ready for spring, warmer weather, flowers, and the inevitable return of allergy season. While here in Michigan the weather is still having a winter-spring identity crisis, it makes perfect weather to stay in your comfiest sweater or pjs and just chill and write.

To help you meet your submission goals, NewPages is here with our weekly round-up of calls for submissions and writing contests featured on our site…for the past two weeks this week as I missed last week.

Don’t forget that you can get early access to these opportunities by subscribing to our newsletter!
