Special Challenge Champion
Modern Day Duel
by Lauren Greene
I liked the tone of this piece, the narrator’s confusion and subsequent headache easily transported the reader in the character’s headspace. The author included the special challenge in a wonderful manner, something that is sure to stick with me in the future when feeling sick. Also, as a DC resident, I was able to fully picture the setting the author described. Great work!
by Holly Geely
A light and funny piece about meddling gone wrong. I liked the dynamic between the sisters, it was very realistic and the author did a great job of balancing a caring, loving, sister with one that also disapproved of her twin’s lifestyle. I liked the format as well, including the “before” and “after” seamlessly and telling a great story in such few words.
