Thank you to EVERYONE who entered - we thoroughly enjoyed reading your stories, we hope you enjoyed creating them. Don't stop now. Write more!

Comment from our Head Judge, Alex McCall:

"It was really hard to pick only three winners for each category. All the entries blew me away with their creativity but the ones we picked each had a unique voice that resonated with us. From political commentary to beautiful descriptions, it was amazing to see just what could be done with only 100 words."
