I recently submitted two entries to North Texas Romance Writers of America Great Expectations competition and was delighted to be advised I was a finalist with Violet’s story. My entry will now be assessed by an editor with a major publishing company and I am thrilled. What an opportunity!!
The feedback I received on both entries was positive, insightful and very helpful. As an Australian writer I am concerned about “Australian-isms” so entering a US competition was a great way to get a different view-point of my writing.
The judges spent time reading and proving good feedback. My favourite line was…”Hope you get a great cover, because I’m sure this one will sell!”
Congrats to the other finalists and also a well done to the non-finalists. Submitting your work in a competition can be scary but very rewarding.
