Annual Chistell contest encourages writers to connect to the source that gives all living beings creative expression.

Today Chistell Publishing announces the winners in its annual literary competition. Poems and short stories penned by writers from around the globe were submitted to the contest. Aim of the competition is to encourage literacy, education and strong story telling skills. “To enjoy and benefit from stories like Star Wars, The Joy Luck Club and Spiral, it is necessary to encourage new writers to delve deep within and connect to the source that gives all living beings creative expression. That is what we do each year with our annual Chistell Writing Contest,” states Denise Turney, the contest sponsor.

First Place winner in this year’s short story category is Brenda Owen of Amarillo, Texas; Brenda’s winning short story is titled “A Tale To Tell”. Second Place short story winner is Autumn Conley of Springfield, Ohio; Autumn’s winning short story is titled “The Chase”.

Winner in the poetry category is Candy Killion of Davie, Florida; Candy’s winning poem is titled “Urban Renewal, Newark”. Second Place poetry winner is Thomas Kemp of Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio; Thomas’ winning poem is untitled.

The Annual Chistell Writing Contest is open to the public. There is no reading fee. “We pick up costs involved in administering the contest which is open to a world of readers – a rainbow of writers,” states Turney. “The power of the written word combined with the durability of a story, makes it clear how wise it is to encourage literacy and strong writing skills. Good writing requires deep inner work, a work that often brings about healing. We’re excited to be a part of this global healing effort.” Readers and writers interested in learning more about the contest may do so by contacting Chistell Publishing at – http://www.chistell.com
