Thank you so much to everyone who entered the 2018 Under the Sea Writing Contest!
You know how contest hosts always say the choices were difficult because the entries were so good? Well, this year was as difficult as surfing a tidal wave in a tropical cyclone while being chased by hungry sharks.
Your stories were as colorful and varied as a rainbowfish. You gave us poems and illustrations. Heartbreak, humor, hunger. Sirens, selkies and mermaids. Scifi, chick lit, folk tales, military, classical, paranormal, fantasy ... but no self-help! We wanted so many of the stories to make it to the finals. If yours wasn't selected, know that it doesn't mean it isn't utterly amazing. This year the competition was oceanic.
Without further ado, Jos1eDemuth and I hereby announce the finalists:
Cora by Saturn137
Dangerous Waters by britainkalai
Drowning by Anne Wilson
The Finwife by lilydfitzgerald
Freeze the Arrow in the short story collection Higher Ground by MadameTango
Rejects by esiaza
So You Want to be a Mermaid by jenalee28
Thank you to all the mertastic authors who entered this year! Now it's up to DaniellePaige139 to crown our winner. She is going to have to make a whale-sized decision. Winner announced October 7th!
