This year, I’m volunteering as the speculative fiction category coordinator for the ACFW Genesis contest, and I’ve enjoyed participating in something I know benefits fellow writers of speculative fiction.
Today all entries had to go out to judges, so I’ve spent most of the day in a flurry of processing entries, reviewing spreadsheets, and sending out emails.
As I worked on various aspects of contest preparation, I began wondering about your experiences with writing contests.
So, those of you who write, have you ever entered or judged a writing contest? How was the experience?
And if you’ve never entered a contest, would you consider it in the future?
