How to Win The L. Ron Hubbard Writers of the Future Contest

Here is another tip from K.D. Wentworth on how to win:

"Using correct format shows the editor that you take yourself seriously as a professional and have gone to the trouble of learning the rules. When an editor pulls a manuscript out of the envelope and it looks like it is supposed to look, she is already predisposed to like it and give it more of a chance than a story with no indentations, blank lines between paragraphs, fanciful borders or icons, illustrations, colored paper, or bizarre fonts. If you are not sure what the correct format is, go to www.sfwa.org and click on the link to Resources, then read Vonda McIntyre's file on Format. It's free to the public and invaluable.
