 “The Crescent” by Anne Marie Hilse

I enjoyed this story a lot. Anything to do with ‘Nawlins is gonna get my attention, and anything with interesting characters and a good pace is gonna keep my attention. This had all that and more.

I don’t want to say too much, though. I want the work to speak for itself.

Again, this story, for whatever reason, spoke to me.

I hope you enjoy it.

1st

 Making Photocopies by Ellie Presner

There was a lot to like in this story. I wanted emotion, and I wanted a character I could connect with, sympathize with, root for.

In Ellie’s story, I got that and so much more.

The Main Character, as you will see, puts herself forefront into a situation easily avoided, and we are with her every painful step of the way as she deals with lost love and maybe a broken heart that appears to have never mended.

It was a beautifully written piece and well-deserving of first prize, and it was my honor to read it and share it with you.

This story, for whatever reason, spoke to me. I loved it from the opening lines and stayed with it all the way though.

I hope you enjoy it.
