Volunteer to be a Judge

If you’re ever invited to judge a writing contest, do it! What a great experience. I found myself reviewing the rules of our craft. This not only helps with judging, it makes us better writers.

Always keep in mind how you feel while being judged in contests. Be kind and honest. Writers helping writers is the goal.

I’m looking forward to reading the winning stories. I wonder if any will be stories I judged!
