Rewrite Your First Ever Story Winners!

Journal Entry: Tue Apr 3, 2012, 6:49 AM

Thank you so much to everyone who submitted to Anthropology-of-Self's first ever contest! All the entries turned out so much more amazing than I ever could have expected.  Thank you all so much for starting this group out with such an amazing bang!

Without further ado: The Winners!

First Place

Funny and brash, whimsical and heartfelt--and ridiculous. So wonderfully ridiculous. It's a perfect showcase of a child's imagination brought to life.

Second Place

An absolutely engrossing tale. I cannot imagine having thought of anything even marginally like this as a child OR and adult.

Third Place

This story has such a lovely folk-tale feel elevated into a strong narrative that any child today would still love reading.


You can see the amazing prize list here. All of you will start receiving prizes in the next few days, so let me know if there is anything special you want done with the points or premium memberships.

Up Next

There will be a prompt this weekend! Be on the look out!

Thank you again to everyone who participated and for everyone who left such lovely comments on the pieces. All the stories were fantastic. In case you missed them, read them all here!

What if I can't remember my first story, but I can remember the earliest one I wrote?
Halatia Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2012  Professional Writer
That's just fine! Whatever the earliest thing you can remember enough to whip out a new story about.

Okay, thanks!
I've sent the story for your approval.

Hey, I think I accidentally submitted my entry for the First Every Story Contest Twice. Sorry about that.
