I've found a website that lists writing contests. Looking at the site, it appears to be a bona fide writing group here in the UK, though the writing competitions are by external organisations. Looking at the competitions, they vary a lot. Most require payment for entry. Some of the biggest ones don't. I've found a page that claims that all writing competitions with entry fees are scams. I'm sure that some of the competitions are scams, but not all of them, surely? Any comments/opinions/experience with paid entry writing competitions?
