We are thrilled to announce the winners of our Word by Word short fiction contest. It was a challenge to whittle down over 60 eligible entries to the five finalists, and even tougher for our final judge, Hilary McMahon of Westwood Creative Artists, to choose the first place winner.
Ms. McMahon had this to say about the winning entry:
“In only a few pages, “Incident at the Office” manages to pack a sizeable punch, balancing the tension of a threatening moment with a complex father-daughter relationship and a teenager’s concern about appearances. The writer’s inventive, descriptive language and deft changes of pace combine to surprise and satisfy the reader.”
1st Place – Dorothy Sjoholm for Incident at the Office
Dorothy will receive $500. and publication on the website.
2nd Place – Frank Westcott for One Shower Too Many
Frank will receive $250. and publication on the website.
3rd Place – Corrie Adams for Beyond the Fence
Corrie will receive $100. and publication on the website.
Congratulations to all our winners!
1st Prize: $500.00 and commentary from Ms. McMahon.
2nd prize: $250.00
3rd prize: $100.00.
The top three winning entries receive publication on WCSC website.
