This week we've published the winning entry in the adult category — a dark tale that considers issues of vengeance, guilt and justice. Next Friday we will publish the winners in the child, teen and young-adult categories.
A reception for Short Story Contest entrants will be held Thursday, Dec. 9, at 7 p.m. at Kepler's Books and Magazines in Menlo Park.
The Weekly thanks each of the writers who entered this year's contest as well as Ann Hellesland and Judy Clement Wall, who chose the top entries in each category to send on to the judges.
Thanks also to our judges, and to contest co-sponsors Bell's Books of Palo Alto, Kepler's of Menlo Park and Linden Tree of Los Altos.
