Valentine’s Contest Winners
We asked for your best essays on love:
They say a picture is worth a thousand words. You get a thousand words to write us a picture of love. We want your best essays on love – imagined, juicy, unrequited, life-long, young, between partners, between friends, between mother and daughter, father and daughter, mother and son, father and son, grandparents, aunts and uncles, pets and owners, for 65 years, for 65 hours, over a summer, through a winter, online, in person, at the movies, in the library – you get the picture. Now write it!
And you responded. We heard about love of pets, siblings, parents, lost loves, classmates and more. Here are our judges’ picks:
1st Place: The Sadists by Kristi Herrington
2nd Place: Live Love Fetch by Shary Folkmann
3rd Place: We Drank Beers and then We Did It by Megan O’Byrne
