Announces the winners of the 2007 Short Story Contest.
First, the setting.
Each story was assigned a unique number. This number was written on the cover sheet and also on the first page of the actual story. The cover sheets were stripped off the stories. Then, all stories were placed in a box and shipped to the judging organization. Stories sent to the judges had no identification as to author, state, or even the sex of the author. The judges got the story, its title, and the unique number assigned to it.
Once there, each story was read by one of several published authors. Each reader then submitted stories he or she believed to be the best in the group he had read. From this group, the winners and honorable mentions were selected.
We don't give out the names of the judges or the writing organization. Judges were writers qualified to judge, a number with previous judging experience.
NETWO wishes to thank the judges for tackling a difficult task, and making the hard decisions. Clearly, a lot of time and effort went into the selection process.
Origin of entries ranged from Oregon to Florida, Texas to Canada, and many states in between. NETWO congratulates each person who entered. Each is a winner, for standing up and saying, "I am a writer," and for having the courage to say, "Here is my work-judge it."
The winners of the 2007 NETWO Short Story Writing Contest are:
