Wilde's Fire Editor Judged Contest WINNERS


The pink armadillo went skydiving with the pineapple gummy bear. Yeah, that's right, I can say anything I want here because you just scanned down to read the names. That's okay, I don't blame you. If you're still paying attention, I wanted to thank you all again for your participation. I was impressed with the quality of the entries overall, and if you weren't chosen, I hope you keep at it and submit to Curiosity Quills Press again in the future.


Krystal says, "First, I'd like to congratulate all the participants in this contest. If your story was not requested for further review, you should not be upset. Seriously, your manuscripts were so close to submission ready that I hated not asking everyone to send on more. We here at Curiosity Quills want to encourage everyone who participated to submit future works to us."

  23. congratulations to everyone, it was such fun reading everyone's entries! (and I can actually say I'm honestly relieved to have not placed at all this time, house-buying/getting ready to move has proven more stressful than I anticipated - yes, you can all say "we told you so!")

    I'll be keeping my eye out for some of these stories ;)
