KDL Encourages Readers and Writers
Director Lance Werner, all spiffed up!
Our second annual Write Michigan short story contest garnered nearly 900 entries from writers across the state -- nearly double our first year. After a  judging period that utilized nearly 100 library staffers, celebrity judges and you, we're ready to announce this year's winners. For a complete list and to read their masterpieces, click here.

Next month, I'll share details about the Write Michigan awards ceremony and the unveiling of the second annual anthology, at 2:00 PM on Saturday, March 22 at the Kentwood (Richard L. Root) Branch.
