2nd Annual TWG Fiction Contest Announces Winners

Well, the TWG Fiction Contest has ended for another year. The judges have made their decisions and the winners have been notified:

First Place: “Temper, Temper” by Barbara Cameron of Courtney, BC
Barbara will receive $250.00 from UNBC and paid publication in Northword Magazine.

Second Place: “Click” by Valerie Laub of Smithers, BC
Valerie will receive $200 from TWG.

Third Place: “Ice Heart” by Angela Dorsey of Sooke, BC
Angela will receive $150.00 from Marion Olson of Re/Max.

Honorable Mention: “We’ve Got Plans” by Catherine Hart of Terrace, BC
Catherine will receive $75.00 from Saz Communications.

I was nominated to be the giver of the good news, and it was very fun to hear the excitement and to listen to the neurosis—“At the end….” “Did you catch….” “Could you check….” Aw, writers, what a lovely, anal bunch we are! But it is that obsession with detail, with getting it right—emotionally and mechanically—that set the winning stories apart this year.

Congratulations to everyone who entered the 2nd Annual TWG Fiction Contest. It will sound corny or trite, perhaps, but there were no losers. By sending in, by being brave, by disciplining yourself to the task of submitting, each was a winner.
