Does it matter when you submit your entry to a writing competition?
I think there was some discussion about this on a thread recently so sorry if its a repeat, but do you think it makes a difference when you send in your entry to a writing competition? I think I remember someone on here saying that lots of competitions will choose their shortlist from the earliest entries, and then not bother to read any entries sent in subsequently. Do you think this is common practice? Im just thinking of how to maximise my chances of getting to a shortlist, and wondered if timing made any difference?
Thanks for any thoughts and productive writing!
