The Summer Writing Contest was a lot of fun.
Who would've thought the theme of fishing would bring out such a variety of stories and essays?
Eight submissions were read by readers selected at random, who did not know whose submission they were reading. Then each piece was judged by the twelve writers present, who gave each story a score between 1 and 10.
We had as much fun trying to figure out who wrote the stories as we did judging them.
Here are the places, titles, and winners' names:
1st Place "Crabbing Buddies" by Sarah Angleton
2nd Place "A Freakin' Good Time" by Alice Muschany
3rd Place "The Divorced Bass Fisherman and the Sea Monster" by Jennifer Hasheider
Congratulations to all the top three scorers as well as all who entered.
