@Zaboem and @jiemae Yes, you're both correct. We the creators are responsible for marketing our own work. That goes with the creative business in general. Tapas is providing a free service where we may post our stories, and it is expected of them to highlight the more popular stories that garnered awareness and income to their business.
However, if they are to hold a writing competition, then their marketing for the writers as a whole is disappointing. Writer's Camp missed an otherwise untapped audience as the Camp was not given a prolonged spot on the front page. I may not have made myself clear in my post, and I will re-edit my comment for clarification.
Thank you, you two, for a good discussion on the matter! And I'm sorry, Zaboem, that you ran into so many technical issues. That's a rough ride.
