Information, inspiration and insights into the writing life
There is so much to say about writing competitions. If you are an emerging writer, winning or being shortlisted for a competition means a great deal. It means recognition. It means validation. It means hope. And sometimes, it means a prize.
We all know the benefits. Entering competition gets you comfortable sharing your work. It gives you practice following submission guidelines (always important). And if nothing else, it represent publishing practice.
