    If there’s an entry fee I make a point NEVER to enter such contests. The magazines that do this are preying on gullible writers and make a very pretty penny for a relatively small investment. You’re subsidizing their crappy little magazine because they’re not good enough to attract readers–and you stand about as much chance of winning as you do with a lottery.

    Editors pay writers, NOT the other way around.

    I agree. Nothing worse than these so called writing competitions, run by pamphleteers, whose purpose is to fund the running costs of their “Literary Magazine” and not to discover new writing talent.
