Our champagne celebration for our Short Story contest was a lot of fun! Thank you to everyone who entered and congratulations to our winners and honorable mention writers. We are grateful that Grand Rapids supports literary endeavors and supports local writers!
Our judge George Dila, author of Nothing More To Tell, enjoyed reading the stories so much that he chose our top three winners, plus three Honorable Mention writers. Our winners are:
First Place: Sue Lynn Yurick for Littoral Zones
Second Place: Darin Estep for Targets
Third Place: Charlsie Dewey for A View from Mount St. Helen
Look for these stories in an upcoming edition of Third Wednesday, a literary journal published by Larry Thomas.
The Honorable Mention Winners are:
Kristina Faust Kaminskas for Recorded Memory,
Rebecca Hadley for Before Sunrise, and
Tanya Eby for Two Sarahs.
We hope everyone who participated enjoyed the experience and we look forward to seeing what everyone will submit for our Poetry Contest, starting in January, 2012!
