The other side of the pencil

See also

Writers who submit their work for consideration or competition rarely get to know what the judges are thinking, especially new writers. This is a great article about what happens on the other side of the pencil, from a judges perspective. Of course this is only one judge's perspective. Certainly they don't all think exactly this way. But it's good to know that simple (easy-to-fix) mistakes like typos and grammar errors might keep a writer out of the winner's circle. Those are mistakes not worth making.
