Submitting

Postby Dragonchef » Mon Nov 26, 2018 1:20 pm

Hi all -
This may be a silly question but...contest rules state "Winners are ineligible to make further entries in the Contest." Does this mean for that year? Ever again? What?

Winning is probably the final wotf submission for a writer. Forever.

If you take 1st, 2nd, or 3rd in any given quarter, you're ineligible in the future. Anything else, and you're still eligible.

(Except possibly, if you are a Published Finalist and being published in WotF constitutes your fourth pro publication, then you would end up pro-ing out with the sale)

Thanks guys. Feels both right and wrong not to be able to enter again...ever! So much fun being able to do so...but I can understand why: gives others the same chance--a crack at the prize. Not that I am expecting to win big, mind you. But dare to dream, eh?
