Fiction: Patricia Webb, The Stranger. As well as winning her category, Particia was judged ‘Grand Prize Winner’ this year, and takes home $1,000.

Creative Non-Fiction: Edythe Anstey Hanen for her piece, The Season of Grace. Edythe (who won the fiction category in last year’s Literary Writes) takes home a $300 prize this year.
