Short Story Contest Judging Ends!

The judging of our 2008 short story writing contest has now been completed.

We enjoyed reading every one of the contest entries and we were able to come up with the finalists. It was not a quick and simple process, however. Each story was read and discussed at great length.

While all the stories were great, those which had that little extra “something” were, through a painstaking process, moved to the top of the list, which we will share with the world as soon as we have contacted the finalists and verified that their stories are still eligible for publication in our newest anthology, “THE ROAD TO ELSEWHERE.”

We would like to again take this opportunity to thank all the great authors who submitted their hard work for this contest. The dedication of writers to their craft is truly amazing and awe-inspiring.

Our 2009 short story writing contest is open and accepting submissions.
