I love regularly reading tips and advice articles in certain subjects — particularly writing and publishing. I don’t always need the information right then, but I know that it’ll eventually come in handy. Or at least, I hope it will.

Fiction Writing Contests Worth Your Time (Fall 2017 Edition), from Writer Unboxed: If you’re interested in entering a contest or two (or more) this fall, you’ll definitely want to give this list a look.
