FAIRYTALES WITH BITE

Getting Feedback gives useful advice on something that should be of immense value to writers – reaction to what you have written! I share what I look for when seeking feedback and also general pointers on competitions. For example, I always look for a competition’s track record before deciding to enter it. And while I haven’t mentioned it in this post (as I forgot!), I will add for newly set up competitions, I look at the people behind it. There will be a track record somewhere for you to judge whether you have a go at the competition or not and, if in any doubt, always check things out with a reputable writing body such as, in the UK, the Society of Authors.
