PROMTAPALOOZA! Contest Winners
And The Winners Are. . . ! The Winners of the PROMPTAPALOOZA! Writer’s Contest
Announcing the winners of PROMPTAPALOOZA! with links to all the published entries.
It was a stellar month and a half with lots of wonderful submissions from some fantastic writers! While some may have said that running a contest as the inaugural event of a brand new publication may not be the smartest move, we received a good number of entries.
There were 71 entries of which 47 were accepted and entered into the contest across the categories of Fiction/Flash Fiction, Poetry and Non-Fiction. Determining the winners wasn’t easy with so many stellar works to choose from. Stories were read and reread, and each was rated in part, on how well they reflected the theme and followed the set guidelines. All winners will be advertised through the Promposity newsletter and a variety of social media platforms.
So without further ado — Onto the winners!
