Everyone knows how fond (and supportive) I am of writers' contests. Aside from the excitement that goes with a possible win, the critques and feedbacks are invaluable. My January 27, 2013 post (http://authorangela.blogspot.com/2013/01/shout-out-to-writing-contests.html) detailed how entering Magic Moment in a contest, although I didn't win, helped me on my road to having the novel published.
I promised to update the contest list periodically. Here are a few that you might want to check out. And, a big thank you to those who give up their time, volunteering as judges. Your feedback is appreciated.
