Thanks to all the writers who participated in the contest and to all the sponsors who continually support it.
We are pleased to announce the winners within each category of the 2013 Sledgehammer 36-Hour Writing Contest!
The youth writers were so talented, and so varied in age, that we were compelled to choose two winners.
“A Chance Encounter” by Kellie Doherty
“Bucket Boys” by Team Wonderbra
“Saddlebrook” by Sarah Kindler
“Smart Pups Support” by Erica Korer
“Don’t Mistake Tenderness for Weakness” by Kate Gray
Congratulations to these very talented writers! Come to Wordstock at the Oregon Convention Center in Portland on Sunday, October 6, 2013, at 5 p.m. to see them read excerpts from their winning stories!

Monthly Mini Sledgehammer Writing Contests
Our first Wednesday series is the newest, occurring monthly at Centennial Library in Metlakatla, Alaska.
First Wednesdays, 6 p.m.
Fourth and Milton
Metlakatla, AK 99926
Free to enter. Each event includes 36 minutes of writing guided by four writing prompts. Stories will be judged, and the winner will take home prizes.
We’ll bring notepads, but feel free to write on your laptop instead. Events start promptly, so arrive early to settle in with a glass of wine or to browse the bookshelves before the clock starts ticking!
PLEASE NOTE: There will be no Mini Sledgehammers during August due to proximity to the big event!
