This popped into my inbox today.
‘Submit a short story that is only 1 page long (maximum 400 words) and have it performed at the Writing Festival by a professional actor. Also garner FULL FEEDBACK on your work.
Deadline March 31st. Submit for only $10. Most of the stories will be accepted and performed. If there is a beginning/middle/end, and the grammar is sound, we will perform it.
Hope to see you submit something to the festival and have it performed.’
I might enter.
I’m loath to pay for something and receive only exposure dollars. I don’t think I need to explain why this is a problem (see the above cartoon.)
However… it could open doors. Emphasis on the could.
Let me know what you think.
