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.
