I suggest WD (writers digest) there contest are looking for new talent usually the judges are agents and editors,
understand the publishing industry is about business, so they are always looking for the next Grisham, or King.
someone that's going sell best sellers, don't give up!!
contest are a great way to get your foot in the door. Personally I have won a few poetry contest and was a runner up for a short short.
Entering is only half the battle, determination is what winners are made of.
So great luck and keep on keeping on...
We are having a contest here try it out...
