In case you missed it, we had another wonderful writing competition this year, full of tremendous talent. The winners have long been announced, but it’s never too late to show off some of the outstanding writers we have here in our community and in our state. Competing with over a hundred entries, these winners rose to the top of an impressive pile to stake their claim to fame (and, hey, a part of the $1200 prize money fortune!). Congrats to our winners and all who bravely put their best literary foot forward…our judges were wowed by the quality of all the entries.
