Organizers, Potbake Productions, say that over 60 writers with more than 80 entries participated in the two-year-old competition and with the volume of entries this year, it was impossible to limit the publication to 10 short stories and so they had to make a final selection of 15.

    Congratulations to both individuals! Delroy, I heard you at the Literary Festival this year and you were fabulous. I keep hoping that more young people would be interested in the literary arts. Too few of our kids are reading these days. I guess I should not be surprised at the very few comments on this type of news.
