“Ink” Honorable Mentions

Congratulations to our “Ink” honorable mentions! These are fantastic stories that may not have placed in the top three, but nevertheless were in the top 40 based on our judges’ scores. These authors should be extremely proud of this accomplishment, especially given that we received 384 stories this year, a new record for the contest.

While they were not chosen for the top three spots, these stories may still be announced as one of the Judge’s Choices or the Director’s Choice. Stay tuned!
