What influenced you to enter the festival? What were your feelings on the initial feedback you received?
I entered this contest because I got a good feeling reading the testimonials. I liked the fact that several writers can have at least a scene read rather than just a single winner. That’s a huge help. The feedback I received was great. It reinforced the good things, while helping to identify the areas needing improvement.
