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.
