Patsy Pittman, contest chairman for WV Writers, won three honorable mentions last year for her short stories. Nancy Merical won 2nd place for her children’s fiction a couple of years ago. I won an honorable mention for a short story the last time I entered. So, it’s doable, folks. Give it your best shot.
