Celebrating Two More Short Story Contest Winners!

By CATHERINE

We're thrilled to announce two more winners:

Leslie Muzingo won the June Magical Realism-Romance contest with her enchanting story, "Emerald Eyes." This is the second contest Leslie has won. We're so thrilled she continues to enter our contests! Keep it up, Leslie!

Sarah Gilligan won the July Tales from the Beach contest with her cleverly nuanced story, "Better Off." 

Judging a blind writing contest brings so much joy. We have no idea who the storyteller is, where they're from, whether they're male or female -- we only have their 1,000-1,200 words and their title. 

I love communicating with the winners after they've been notified. My heart explodes with joy for them and I probably say "Congratulations!" and "Thank you for entering!" a half dozen times in our initial interactions. 

As we head into the last three months of 2017, we've posted our final six contests on Submittable.

We've also begun the conversation with our graphic designers for creating the anthology...and we're having a contest for artists, designers, illustrators, photographers, and anyone who knows their way around Photoshop to submit an entry. Again, that will be a blind contest. 

We'll be announcing the winners of the August contests soon: "Spaghetti Western" and "On the First Day of August..." Stay tuned!
