I really enjoyed the imagination of these young authors. I look forward to publishing their stories on this website on June 1st.
I’m also pleased to say that my story “Wallet” won first place the Gold Country Writers 100 Words Story Contest. Entries had to be exactly 100 words. It was quite a challenge. To read my story as well and the other winners click here.
