Treasure Competition Results

Last week, the focus was on flash fiction and the results of my 100-word story competition. This week, it’s over to the longer story.

I love the different ideas you came up with and, if I thought I had a hard task choosing the winners of the flash fiction story, I had an even harder task picking the winning entries of this competition. Here they are:

1st Place: Daddy’s Treasure by Jane Willis

2nd Place:On The High Slopes by Helen Jones

3rd Place: Treasures In The Darkness by Jo Derrick


Highly Commended:

The Treasure Is Mine by Lestie Mulholland
