I entered a YA short story in the WCDR (Writers’ Circle of Durham Region) short story contest, and it won third place!
I’m very happy, because I like this story. I’d been working on it for a while, with feedback from my wonderful writing group and from Peter Carver’s class at Mabel’s Fables last spring.
I’d also like to point out that the second-place winner, Nora Landry, is a friend from that same wonderful writing group! Yay, Nora. 🙂
There’s a link to all the winning entries here, if anyone would like to read them.
