Memoir Writing Contest Winners Announced

Women’s Memoirs is pleased to announced the winners of our Memories of Winter contest. We had a much larger number of entries than in previous contests and so it took us quite a while to review them all and select those that will be published in an ebook.

We hope you’ll take a few minutes to look at the list and to offer your congratulations to these winners. We are always honored to receive entries for our contests. It shows a willingness and determination to share stories–treasured stories. It is easier to sit and write but never submit your work. So we thank all of you who did enter–even if you didn’t win this time. Please keep polishing your stories and entering contests, whether ours or those offered on other sites.
