2007 Literary Magic Fiction and Poetry Contests
The 2007 Literary Magic Fiction and Poetry Contests were a major success. We received in excess of a hundred
submissions, surpassing the amount we received last year. Stories and poetry came from countries around the world, including
the United States, United Kingdom, Ireland, France, Belgium and South Africa. Many writers entered and our editors had
the chance to read and judge very interesting, well written and creative short stories and poems.
and Third place winners for both categories, Fiction and Poetry, are listed below. The winners' stories and poems are published
in this issue of the magazine, along with full Critiques of their works (written below each story or poem).
the judges have also chosen the five Runner-Ups for each category, Fiction and Poetry. Runner-Up stries and poems will be
published in a future issue of Literary Magic.
