It seems fishy, but I know so little about writing contests. They charge $20 to enter. How many months is the submission window? Their angle is that "agents read us," so if they get, say, two-thousand desperate submitters, they make $40,000. The ten winners will split the $5,000 grand prize ten ways, so that's $500 per writer.

Hm. "Writing contests" seem a good way to quick cash.

While I wouldn't recommend contests as a mainstay, I see no reason not to consider them. Just because they charge to enter doesn't mean they're a scam or a waste of time (the Pulitzer kinda dispels that idea). One does need to consider the cost to enter versus the prize(s) awarded, of course, and check on the reputation of the sponsor.

Check Poets & Writers if you want find contests that have been vetted.

It's really not that hard. Just tell me a story.

Not every contest is from Podunk Holler offering prizes of $10 for a $5 entry fee. As I said, look through Poets & Writers and you'll see the highly respected journals that offer these contests. They're not for everyone, and if you feel they're a waste of time, James, then don't enter. But there's no reason to paint them all with the same brush, or to summarily dismiss another avenue to publishing. As I said, I wouldn't make them the mainstay but there are certainly some that are well worth trying.
