Try to find out some information on the Chief Judge (or the magazine, newspaper or publisher). If submitting to a contest, ask yourself: “What are the themes that dominate the judge’s works? What are his or her interests?” You can bet your life that if you submit an entry on a similar subject, your work will automatically be included in the limited number of entries that are forwarded to the Celebrity Judge for his or her perusal. If submitting to a magazine or newspaper, read a few copies online if possible. If submitting to a publisher, make sure he is presently publishing similar material. 3. Make your submission look attractive to read. Avoid pages of solid type. Short paragraphs should be varied with those of medium length. 4. Your submission should not look like a text message. 5. Your title and your opening lines or paragraphs will generally make or break your contest entry. (The author is currently Chief Judge for three leading USA literary events, including the annual Tom Howard Short Story, Essay and Prose Contest). (3,355 words).
