Literary Magic Fiction and Poetry Contest Winners
Literary Magic 2006 Fiction and Poetry Contests were both great successes. We received over 100 entries for both contests
from 9 countries, including the United States, the United Kingdom, Israel, Australia, France, Germany, India and
are the winners of the fiction and poetry contests. To read their stories and poems, click on their titles. The top three
winners of both contests received a critique by our editors as well, which can be read also. Honorary Mentions (five for each
contest) are listed below the top three winners. Literary Magic thanks every writer who submitted their fiction and poetry
