This presentation/workshop will focus on whether to enter contests (what’s to be gained for new or experienced writers), how to evaluate “good” and “bad” contests (and what are some red flags), and how to give your entry the best chance to win (what judges look for, how to read submission guidelines, etc.).
Nancy Sakaduski is the author of 23 books, including How to Write Winning Short Stories, editor of the Rehoboth Beach Reads series, and owner of Cat & Mouse Press.
