A few words from the journal that brings you info on SiWC's writing contest and others. From Sue at Kudos (a UK publication)....
Everybody always remembers that amazing moment they actually won a prize,
but writers can always come out on top -
because entering competitions encourages motivation, organisation, and inspiration.
