You wrote Stories!
Sharing Stories, 2021, was slow getting going. There were a few eager writers who submitted stories right away. Then there was a scary lull, during which we feared the event might fall on its face. We sent out encouraging messages to our membership and extended the deadline to November 1. Then the stories started to tumble into our inboxes. Sharing Stories, 2021, ended up with so many fascinating stories that it was truly difficult to select only six. All the stories will be available for you to read on our website after November 20, when you will hear the six winners read their stories.
- All entries received a small gift for participation.
- All entries entered into the Sharing Stories virtual drawing for three $25 cash prizes
- Special virtual drawing of stories about San Mateo County for three SMCGS tote bags.
