Introducing Kelley Jo Burke who won first place for her short story Everything’s Got a Moral, if Only You Can Find it. She wasn’t able to attend the Festival so sent us these awesome pix when she received her certificate and anthology in the mail.
Huge congratulations to you Kelley Jo! In her recent note to WCWF, Kelley noted that these pix were taken by Eric Eggertson and that she’d see us next September! YAY!!🎉🎉
If you won or placed in the WCWF 2nd Annual Writing Contest, send us a picture with your certificate and anthology. Always celebrate the victories–it’s a big deal!
Brian sent us this picture this morning as he recently received his certificate and anthology.
After coming in second in the fiction category for his short story Lieber’s Report, Brian chose to drive to, and attend, the Wine Country Writers’ Festival. So awesome. We sure hope to see him next year too.
Thanks for sending this Brian!
If you have your certificate and anthology, please send us a pic so we can post it. It’s a big deal to win a writing contest. Don’t under estimate the achievement.
