If you enter a contest or two, please read the rules and requirements carefully. They do vary a bit from contest to contest. And we do thank those judges who have stepped up to help us identify the best of the best.

Note: To increase our contest entries, we've combined several earlier categories and eliminated the entry fees. Anyone affected by this has had their entry fee refunded and their entry retained! Best of luck to all.

If you want to hear the winning entries annouced and get a first-reading to the public, then do sign up for the ThinkingFunny23 Humor-Writing Conference, via Crowdcast on April 1 of 2023. It will be recorded, too, but there's nothing quite like being there live!
