Bittersweet Writing Competition Showcase

Write Like You Mean It, the weekly writing group at Main Library, recently hosted the Bittersweet Writing Competition. Entries were short fiction stories, 1000 words or less, on the theme “Bittersweet.”

The response was exciting. Judges were impressed by the quality of work and the variety of styles and genres represented by the submissions.
