So, this just happened! I won the Inspirational Romance category of the Wisconsin Fab Five writing contest! I’m so thankful for writing friends and mentors who push me to step outside my comfort zone and enter contests I wouldn’t normally enter.
You may be wondering, what are the benefits of entering contests? Well, I see two main benefits. First, it’s a great way to get unbiased feedback on your writing. Second, entering contests is an excellent way to get your work in front of an editor who might not have seen it otherwise. So, if you’re a writer and you’ve been “sitting on the fence” trying to decide if you should enter contests, I say go for it!
