1st Quarter 2007 Writer Winners Announced!

The judges results are in and the winners for the 1st Quarter of the 2007 Writers of the Future contest (October 1st - December 31st) are:

1st Place goes to Patrick Lundrigan of Boonton, NJ for his story Hangar Queen

2nd Place goes to Laura Bradley Rede of Minneapolis, MN for her story Epiphany

3rd Place goes to David Parish-Whittaker of Encinitas, CA for his story A Warbird in the Belly of the Mouse

Congratulations to all of you.

The judges for this quarter were: Tim Powers, Nina Kiriki Hoffman, Brian Herbert and Dave Wolverton.

As far as the judging is concerned this was a tough quarter because the finalist stories were all very good. Those finalists who were also judged this quarter are also to be congratulated publicly for their fine work and are expected to enter again as soon as possible.

Any one of the following writers may still have their story published in the event that we need more stories to fill out the volume next year. This we call a "published finalist". This is determined closer to the publication of the book, which will be in 2008.

The finalists for the the first quarter were:

January Mortimer of the UK for More Than a Butterfly
Z.S. Adani of Boca Raton, FL for The Burn
Dr. Philip Edward Kaldon of Allendale, MI for The Moons of Mercury
E.C. Myers of New York City for My Father's Eyes
Ayne Terceira of Gainesville, FL for Forfeits, or, How Mister Hobb Perked Up the
Christmas Festivities

Please note that the illustrator winners will be announced in the next couple of days. We are waiting on the last judge results to make the determination.

Joni Labaqui - Director of the Writers and Illustrators of the Future Contest
