Well Figs, you banned everything from color and happiness to siblings and lovers for the Gabrielle Zevin Contest, and we can’t even tell you how glad we are that this is just a contest. Whew.
Congratulations to the two winners, chosen by Gabrielle Zevin herself!
To all of the finalists, Gabrielle Zevin says:
Thanks for the colorful and varied entries! The work I was most drawn to had a combination of original concept – i.e., something I hadn’t read before — and voice.
I remember entering writing contests when I was a teen – I lost far more frequently than I won. The point is to keep entering contests, keep reading, keep writing. You get better from doing it, but also, the more you do it, the greater the likelihood you’ll come across people who do get your work. These people are your readers.
