Note from the Editorial Team and Jury:
We want to extend a heartfelt thank you to everyone who participated in the contest. Your dedication to the craft of writing is inspiring.
To those who did not win the story contest, we would like to extend our sincere appreciation for your participation and effort. The competition was tough, and the quality of the entries was exceptional, making the judging process incredibly challenging.
We understand that receiving a rejection or not being selected as a winner can be disappointing and disheartening, but we want to encourage you to keep writing and never give up on your passion. Writing is a journey, and every piece you create, whether it wins a contest or not, is an opportunity to improve your craft and develop your voice as a writer. One of the best ways to improve your writing is to continue reading and writing regularly. Reading widely exposes you to different styles, genres, and techniques, while writing frequently helps you refine your own voice and develop your own unique style.
Above all, never lose sight of the joy and fulfillment that writing brings you. Whether or not you win a contest or receive recognition for your work, the act of creating and sharing your stories is a reward in itself. It’s essential to remember that not winning a contest does not mean your writing is not good enough. It is simply a matter of personal taste, and the judges’ decision is not a reflection of your talent or potential.
We encourage you to take this as an opportunity to learn and grow from the experience. Receiving feedback and constructive criticism can help you identify areas where you can improve and develop your skills as a writer.
So keep writing, keep growing, and keep sharing your stories with the world. We look forward to seeing your future works and wish you all the best in your writing journey.
Stay tuned for more details on our next writing contest!
