OK people, you’ve got about a month left to enter The Writing Fairy Humor-Writing Contest! The judges are all on pins and needles, waiting to receive your brilliantly funny stuff. Pins and needles hurt, so get off your butt and write something funny already and send it in.

It’s only 10 bucks to enter, and you stand to win a fabulous prize if your entry is chosen as one of the top three.

Here are some reasons why you should polish up a funny entry soon:

  • You could win $500, $250 or $125 for making the judges laugh
  • It’s an opportunity to do some highly creative writing
  • The final three judges are fabulously funny writers Neil Crone, Debra McGrath and Gordon Kirkland
  • Even the first-round judges are sufficiently wacky to do the job (their identities will remain anonymous, as they’re in a first-round judge protection program at the moment)
  • There aren’t that many humour-writing contests out there
  • The best time to enter a writing contest is the first year it’s run, because fewer people know about it
  • It’s fun
  • The Writing Fairy says so

So let’s hear it from all you closet comics — I know you’re out there. Visit the Humour-Writing Contest page and follow the bouncing ball.

Looking forward to reading your stuff!
