We at WritingRoom want to extend a whole-hearted congratulations to our October '08 Poetry and Short Story Contest Winners. Once again, we had another difficult decision to make and want to applaud everyone who submitted entries.
The first place winner of the poetry contest is Melinda Kahler for her poem, A LADY IN WAITING. The runner-up is Debbie Campbell for her poem, I KNOW YOU ARE THERE.
The first place winner of the short story contest is D.L. Wilson for his short story, REVENGE IN GENERAL. The runner-up is Rebekah Thome for her story THE VOICE.
The winners short stories and poems will be featured, along with all the entires, in an anthology that will be titled: RUNNING WILLOWS ~ WAITING REVENGE: a collection of poems and short stories from WritingRoom's September '08 and October '08 Poetry and Short Story Contest. The anthology will be availabe in the PublishingRoom bookstore early next year.
Thank you to Michele for the inspiration for the title you left on the the blog 'September Contest Winners'!
We are now accepting submissions for the November '08 Poetry and Short Story Contest. Best of luck!
