WV Writers Contest F.A.Q. #25

Continuing the series of Frequently Asked Questions about the West Virginia Writers, Inc., Annual Writing Competitions.  To see all of the questions, please click HERE.

Question: Hello is there a way to read the winners stories for the past years?

Answer:  Technically, yes, but probably not in the way most folks expect. Some of the winning entries from 1977-2008 have been published in five separate collections. These were done on a piece by piece basis, since WVW retains no rights to publication of the winning pieces, so even the collections do not contain ALL contest winners, but only a majority of them. The last such volume, Seeking the Swan, was published in 2008. (You can find these listed on Amazon. If you attend a WVW Summer Conference, I feel certain we can find a copy of it for you, and possibly most of the others.)
