Ever notice how this word doesn’t produce the same action in people. Seriously, what does this word mean? I’m not going to bore you with the definition. The contest committee is still dealing with entries. We (and I’m speaking for Linda and the other chairs) take our responsibility to all entrants seriously. We take pride in the contest plus RWI’s reputation. We want repeat business.
Is it that much to ask that judges do the same? I’m thinking yes based solely on the entries that have come back “judged” and those that failed to do the same.
We are all busy. We all have full lives that scheduled with writing. Okay, I may be an exception here because I’m off on another adventure. We have dedicated far too many waking hours to this contest that benefits all the members of RWI.
When asked to judge unpublished entries, please take this responsibility seriously.
