awkward, out of breath

Editing to add: After Tempest’s comments I redid the math and realized I had it wrong in the first place; with a $30 entry fee they’d only need 34 entries to cover the first prize, and you’d need a couple hundred to be a good competition. So we should find out a) if the 2nd and 3rd places get paid for publication, and how much, and b) if the judge is being paid, or what they’re doing with the rest of the money. I will do m’best to ask once I’ve had more meds but, really sick today so if someone else wants to run with it please don’t wait on me.

If the point of the competition is to make money off the entrants, it’s a bad idea -  and that seems to be the case.

Health means I probably can’t participate, but signal boost.  From the little I know, final judge Sheree Renée Thomas is awesome :)

It’s for entries of 6000 words or less, previously unpublished, deadline is June 20th, further rules at the link!

Note there is a $30 entry fee to this contest. If you want to enter and can’t afford it, please message me? I can help a couple people, and if more people need help I can (health allowing) put together a post asking for donors.
