Kate says: First of all, what struck me was the level of writing ability displayed by everyone who participated. Usually when a group gathers like this I don't see everyone good! The effort displayed to present a clean, nicely self-edited piece alone made my editor's heart sing.

Winners Announcement:

Honorable Mentions

Anne Odom | @AFOdom
Kate says: For her very realistic portrayal of a man who really does know how to please a woman. The male POV is not always so well done!

Olivia Starke | @OliviaStarke
Kate says: I found myself close to tears with her elegant prose as she shared a woman's life-changing decision

Anastasia Vitsky | @AnastasiaVitsky
Kate says: Her easy style for this piece,  was appealing on a whole other level. Made me feel as if I found a whole new Anastasia to read, one I like as well, but in a different way, than her usual carefully crafted words.

Sheilagh Lee | @SweetSheil
Kate says: For her poem which was touching, with a note of wistfulness throughout. Made me want to read more of her work..

Week 108 Winner

Simon Abernathy

Kate says: The tale of a grandfather in the hospital, waiting to die, and the granddaughter who knows a better way. I had a very hard time selecting just one story to win, but the pacing of this piece pushed it over the top. It's difficult to establish such a complete scene, show so many facets of a person's life, and make the reader care so much about both of the main characters in such a short piece.


Congratulations SIX TIME WINNER Simon, Anna, Olivia, Anastasia, and Sheilagh! Don't forget to claim your badges and display them with pride. You certainly earned it!
