Subject: Re: [New-Poetry] on gender and contests
those of you who have judged competitions, contests, for scripts,
manuscripts, plays, etc.:
can you tell the gender of the writer? by subject matter? other qualities?
is it important to you / do you gravitate toward a particular subject
matter or particular gender of author? do you know why?
do you prefer works which seem to "transcend" gender, where the gender
of the author does not matter / is not as important as other
Since most contests are judged, I think there is probably a big
difference between the slush pile and the finalists (selected,
usually, by readers) and then the winners selected by judges. I know
that there are certain frequent judges who do seem to choose more
women than men, or more of an even assortment, and certain who do not.
But I would like to hear from the judges themselves.
