And the High Desert Retreat Scholarship winner is. . .

by Halie Rosenberg

We recieved so many amazing submissions the High Desert Retreat Scholarship. We wish that we could take everyone who entered to the retreat! The writing was really THAT good! But alas, there can only be one winner of the scholarship to the retreat. And that winner is Joe Dornich and for his piece titled "When You Wish Upon a Star."

Congratulations, Joe! Joe's favorite place to write is in public places - parks, coffee shops, book stores. He says, "The noise and energy of the place keeps me going, plus I use the surrounding people to flesh out characters. The other day I saw a woman with hair the color of falling wheat."

The level of writing was so high for this contest that we decided to offer a 2nd, 3rd, and 4th place prize. The winners are:

2nd Place - Soseh Kevorkian. She wins a 2 hr one-on-one consultation with Marilyn and a free class at Writing Pad (1 day, 2 1/2 hr).
3rd Place - Priscilla Leonard wins a free class at Writing Pad (1 day, 2 1/2 hr).
4th Place - Michael Kass is also a winner of a free class at Writing Pad (1 day, 2 1/2 hr).

Thank you again for all your fabulous entries and also to our magnificent panel of judges. We truly hope you'll continue to share your work on The Well Fed Muse. We frequently award free classes to the best stories! And you are all amazing writers!

Now off to pack our bathing suits for the High Desert Retreat!

P.S. We will be doing a literary variety show to feature the wonderful writing from this contest (including some of those who did not place). Stay tuned!
