Under the Sea 2018 - Finalists!!!

339 22 43

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:
