It’s a great day!
Today is the day that we get to unveil the winners of our Cavalcade of Authors West Writing Contest!
Participants submitted their short story for our writing contest back in February. Stories could be in prose or verse, and were judged by a panel from Pacific Lutheran University based on originality, unique style, creativity, and use of descriptive language. The work had to be original and no more than 1,500 words. The winning stories from the middle school and high school divisions will be published in The Mast (the PLU newspaper).
With all that being said, we are so glad to finally let the world know about our two winners!
Let’s hear it for our winners!
We are so excited to post an excerpt shortly from both stories for your viewing pleasure! Our winners received not only recognition (and a published piece in The Mooring Mast), but a gift card for their first place finishes.
We couldn’t be prouder of you both!
Thank you so much to all of our participants–we hope you submit pieces for next years contest–we can’t wait to see your work!
