Yes, I judged it once - many years ago. Because it was a short story competition, I didn't even have free books to show for it, and there was no anthology of MGB fiction to give me, but you get so flattered when people think you're worthy to judge others' writing. I did get a free dinner at the awards ceremony.
Would I do it again? Maybe not; I've been slushing for ASIM for so long, it would feel like a case of "been there, done that!"
I'm not sorry I did it then, though. It was a good experience and I'm sure I learned plenty from it.
Anyway, if you want to read about it, trot along to the Doghouse from 7.00 a.m. November 13.
