SBWC Humor Contest Winner

I am pleased to announce the winner of SBWC's Humor Contest is Jerry Anderson of Escondido, CA. This will be his first time attending the Santa Barbara Writers Conference. In addition to writing humorous pieces, he has written an historical novel. 

On Wednesday we will announce a number of honorable mentions out of the many entries to our writing contests this year.

In case you missed it, our earlier announced scholarship winners were:

Poetry -- Nancy Allen from Lynchburg, VA

Prose -- Deborah Sue George from Los Angeles, CA 

Combination of entries -- Jordan O'Halloran from Middletown, CA

All 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.

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 honor more writers who sent in excellent entries and deserve kudos. So stay tuned.
