Before I accept, these are my basic demands: Any writing contest means that not only will content be judged for originality, but also exposition, syntax, grammar, spelling, and an overall command of sentence structure with varying simple/compound sentences. The subject will be one of which we both agree. For example, it can be a basic biography of Abraham Lincoln or some other American figure. It will be written in essay form. There will be a minimal word count of no less than 1,500 words. Each paragraph will have a subject sentence and a conclusion. There must be a Bibliography. The judges will be impartial to either you or me. The loser will sign off of Dawg's forever. These are my basic demands before submitting to any writing contest. Submit your approval or stay content dying a slow insignificant death.
