The results are in!
The Notes From the Writing Chair Short Story Contest received twelve entries from eleven different authors from all over the world. I had a blast reading them, but judging is always so hard!
First off, I want to give a huge thank you to my story wrangler, the incredibly talented and handsome Tracy Lofthouse, who made sure I could do the judging completely blind. He did a great job managing it all.
And now... Announcing the winning entry in the Notes From the Writing Chair Short Story Contest:
by Almiria Wilhelm!
This is a haunting fantasy about a dance teacher and her star pupil set in a fascinating alternate world. I can't wait to share it with you! The story will be published here on the blog in January. Plus, I'll do an interview with Almiria, so we can all get to know this talented author better.
Thanks so much to all of you wonderful people who entered and helped me promote this contest. I think there will be more short story contests in the future!
