We are pleased to announce that the e-book anthology of our 2018 writing contest’s winning entries is now available!
You can now purchase Perseverance: Chapter One Events Writing Competition Collection, Second Edition from a number of e-book retailers, including Amazon and Blurb. It’ll also be available through Barnes & noble and iBooks, shortly. And in order to make the anthology accessible to as many readers as possible, for a limited time we’re pricing it at only $0.99! Hurray!
We absolutely love the poems and short stories that won our 2018 writing contest, and we hope you will love them too. Happy reading!
You’ll note in the contest results below that we don’t necessarily award a full set of winners for each category. This is because we believe in rewarding quality over quantity, so we’ve limited our winners to only those entries we find fitting of this distinction. (Basically this means, if you won something, it’s because we really love you.)
Now, without further ado: drum roll please………
