Do the judges receive print or electronic copies of the stories to review?

Postby LibrarianBarbarian » Thu Mar 26, 2020 10:26 pm

Just wondering if they read a hardcopy or an electronic file.

Electronically, i guess, if you submit an electronic file. On the eighth page of the blog, in the article "Why You Only Got An Honorable Mention", paragraph 2 line 1, Dave Farland says "Right now on my computer, I have a story up."
See this link: https://www.writersofthefuture.com/why- ... e-mention/
Hope this helps :)

In the past we mailed stories.
Then they opened electronically. Some did that, some mailed.
Now, while mailing is an option, most submit online. Stories don't get printed out *.
Dave prefers e-copies.


*one quarter there was a problem with the submission engine. People e-mailed their stories to Joni who then printed them.

PLEASE send them electronically via the Wizehive system due to COVID-19 contamination concerns. Kary will thank you. Unless you want your manuscript doused in Lysol!

Thanks everyone! I am submitting online. I was never planning to send a hardcopy. I just wanted to know if the submissions were printed out for the judges to read, or if they read them on their PCs or devices. Thank you!
