Have an opinion? Let everyone know who YOU would pick in the comments!

I’ll be selecting and announcing the prize winner very soon. Speaking of which…

Story of the Year Prize

The prize for the Story of the Year winner will be:

  • $50 (Canadian)
  • Enshrinement in the new 50WS Hall of Fame

I’m still thinking through the fine details of the 50WS Hall of Fame, but in general it will be an exclusive way to recognize the most noteworthy authors who have contributed to the site.

  1. A vote outside the hue and cry! This vote for Perry McDaid and his “Inspiration” This would be my pick as the story of the year.

    I do not care much for the long rambling bio, but the 50-W story website is not really about bios, it’s about interesting stories. So, I honor the story. This one is very, very interesting … so it got 5-stars from me, and another star as being the best of the stories in the running for story of the year.
