Someone just posted a new question Should a short story be submitted to a publisher in order to know if they would be interested in a book based on it? where they used the tag writing-competitions
I found this strange because we already have contests, a long-standing tag with 16 questions, which reads:
This tag should be used for questions about writing contests. You should specify what genre and length you are interested in.
This tag should be used for questions about writing contests. You should specify what genre, such as horror or comedy and what length, such as short-story or novel, you are interested in.
writing-competitions is just over 10 months old and only has 3 questions. The new one, a closed one, and one more.
So I switched those 3 questions to contests
This will allow writing-competitions to die out. Unless someone wants to make it a synonym.
