Know why to self-publish or find agent/publisher

@2011Marta
To self-publish or look for an agent is not a decision that only new authors pour over. Some think that authors published by a publisher have it made and no longer have to bother selling their book(s), but that is not the case. The authors I've talked with are constantly looking for publishing and marketing source. On the article by She Writes several agents discuss publishing choices: Articles by Agents on SheWrites.

27 writing contests, almost all are free.

About writing contests. 
For novels, short stories, poetry fiction or non-fiction from medical mysteries to romance and science fiction the most trusted sites are Poets&Writers, PE, Predators&Editors and the Writer's Guild OfAmerica, West. Said sites are also valuable if you are looking for conferences, agents, publishers, workshops, attorneys, etc.
Today I came upon The Write Life , with a quick list of 27 Free Writing Contests: Legitimate Competitions WithCash Prizes, a couple should not be listed because they are not free, but the site is a useful resource.
It is important to the sites to know if you have entered any of the contests or used services listed that are useful or a rip-off.
