And The Winner Of The 12 Short Stories Competition Is…

Writers Write and 12 Short Stories are thrilled to announce that the winner of our short story competition for 2017 is:

Beth Stillman Blaha

We loved her tale about family, death and the challenge of forgiveness. She had us craving Peppermint Mocha coffees and giving silent thanks that we didn’t end up with that particular mother.

Beth wins the Writers Write Online Course. It is a complete introduction to novel writing. It consists of 60 Modules with 100 writing exercises. It covers everything from plotting to pacing to publishing. It is self-paced, internet-based, and includes eight, 45-minute, creative writing consultations via Skype with Mia Botha. The course is valued at US $599.

Well done, Beth!

And congratulations to the following runners-up (in no particular order):

  1. Elspeth Henner
  2. Zane Baisley
  3. Robt o’Rourke
  4. Sophia Wodin
  5. Juanita Ozamiz

They each receive a complete short story appraisal, plus a 45-minute writing consultation via skype, to the value of $99.

Well done!

Thank you to everyone who entered the competition. I loved your stories.

Keep writing
