Down to the Final Five


The 42 Stories Anthology is down to the five Craft of Writing entries to reach the 1,764 mark. These five entrants will receive $42 (or they can have it donated to a charity pot for United Through Reading), answer an interview question in 42 words (details here:, and select the winning stories for one of the following chapters in the book:






While we try to find the final five, I'd like to mention something about spam folders. 

It's good to check them twice a month (minimum). Before being so busy, I used to submit stories, too, and found not one, or two, but several acceptance emails in my spam folder during that time. Now Google has added new folders, which are the Social and Promotions folders. They're useful, but you might miss an important email because none of these messages reach you unless you go to the folder. That said, the Story of Excellence Winners for the following chapters are:
