We were swept into memories of water, mystery, and delight with the submissions for the 2020 Wind and Water Writing Contest! This year’s theme of memory made for such lovely reading that we had a difficult task of picking those we felt best handled the theme while also using the skills a writer has available to them.
After copious amounts of delightful reading and careful consideration by our judges, we are pleased to announce the winners!
First Prize: Morning Swims* by Shauna Haugen
Honourable Mention: Waterlovers by Karole Marois
First Prize: Mona’s Roadkill* by Andrew Binks, Fiction
Honourable Mention: Swinging Sticks, Sliding Doors by Nora-Lyn Veevers, Non-fiction
