Thank you for this comprehensive explanation. While the situation for RWA is sad, the strength of FTH is remarkable.
- The Vivian Contest, for published works, had one category for unpublished works. No entry fee required for diverse populations, but still did not do as well as hoped.
I believe there was a lot of confusion around the Vivian last fall regarding fees. Sometime in October (?) the RWA board offered all members waived entry fee on their first Vivian entry to encourage participation, with additional entries being charged full fee.
