Opinions on Writing Contests
Did anyone else read Nathan Bransford post on contests last week? If not here's a link: All About Contests. I'm curious to hear other opinions too. I mean I can appreciate the advice about making sure you understand a contests rules before entering - very good point, especially when it pertains to your rights and any publishing contracts that may be offered as a prize. But I was really surprised to learn that winning a prize doesn't seem to offer any more advantage in the eyes of an agent. And here I thought it might give an edge. Huh, there's just so much to learn. So maybe I need to go back and rework my plan. Anyone else have opinions either way?
