Is Florida First Coast Writer's Festival legitimate?
I'm trying to find anyone else who entered. I submitted my novel along with a $39 entry fee, enclosed a SASE postcard (just to make sure they had received it) and have heard nothing. The deadline was January 7th.
I called the website's number to ask a question BEFORE the contest, but my call wasn't returned. I thought they might be swamped, and returning an entrant's call might not be top priority. AFTER the contest deadline, they updated the website to say they were NOT having a festival this year, but were still going to hold the contest. There isn't a way to contact anyone from the site.
Does anyone else have any information about the contest? How long do you customarily wait to hear contest results in a situation like this?
