I am pleased to announce the top 3 winners for SBWC's 2018 Scholarship Contest in alphabetical order .
Poetry -- Nancy Allen from Lynchburg, VA
Prose -- Deborah Sue George from Los Angeles, CA
Combination of entries -- Jordan O'Halloran from Middletown, CA
All three are first time attendees of the Santa Barbara Writers Conference.
Each will receive free tuition to the 2018 SBWC, June 17-22.
Congrats to all three.
We still have one active Humor writing contest with a submission deadline of midnight May 13. See previous blog entry for details on that.
The winner of the humor contest will be announced May 18.
At that time we will also acknowledge a number of honorable mentions across all categories and contests.
The quality of writing submitted this year was amazing. It was challenging for the judges to make final decisions. But we still want to specifically single out more writers who sent in excellent entries and deserve kudos. So stay tuned.
