Huge congratulations to the new Writers of the Future winners, 3rd Quarter 2011:
1st Place – William Mitchell of London, England
2nd Place -M.O. Muriel of Texas
3rd Place – Jacob A. Boyd of Oregon
I’m particularly excited to see Meghan Muriel in the winners’ list. Meghan was one of this past year’s winning illustrators — just to the left is her illustration for Patrick O’Sullivan’s excellent story “Maddy Dune’s First and Only Spellling Bee” — and she becomes only the third person ever to win the Contest both as a writer and an illustrator. Great work, Meghan!
