In honor of our Five Year Anniversary, In Print hosted a 5Y5W writing contest. Submissions were limited to 250 words or less and had to include the 5 “in” words: Inspire, Indulge, Intrigue, Integrity, and Innocent. Submissions were posted to the In Print Facebook page for one week of reading and commenting. Readers could comment on up to five pieces. Voting was tallied by how many comments were left on each piece. After almost 200 comments, we are proud to announce the winners of the 5Y5W In Print Writing Contest.
- Tricia Wagner, “The Slaying of the North”
- Molly Nechvatal, “Truth is”
- Kathleen Tresemer, “Celebrity Writer”
- Mary Lamphere, “Yes, I’m Old”
- Debbie Deutsch, “Bold Assault Charming on Nose”
- Lynne Shippee Howe, “Innocence”
There was a tie for fifth place, so we have six winners. One a year for five years and one to grow on! Winning pieces will be read by guest speaker Dan Klefstad at the I AM IN PRINT Five Year Celebration. The anniversary event will take place Saturday, March 12, from 1:00 to 4:00 pm at the lovely and historic Cliffbreakers Riverside Hotel & Conference Center. Tickets are $20 and include soft drinks, appetizers, desserts, and a program. There will also be a cash bar and silent auction.
