Subtitled, "How to Join the Winners' Circle for Prose and Poetry Awards", this book tells authors how to select the right contests for their work. Most authors waste time and money sending entries to contests in which they have no possible chance of success. If the judge is only interested in "themes relating to sickness and death", as one judge admitted, then 98% of entrants were simply throwing money away. This book not only details how to identify contests in which the subject matter is restricted, and how to bring submissions to the judge's attention, but also provides many tips for maximizing chances for success. The author is himself a former prize-winning contestant and now Chief Judge for three of America's leading annual writing competitions.
