Winners of the 2013 "Book Inside the Story" Contest

In December 2013 we ran our first contest. "The Book Inside the Story" Short Fiction Contest challenged writers to create a story in which a book played a major role. This could be any kind of book – an old heirloom from the protagonist’s grandparents, a wizard’s book of spells, the one book that the antagonist checked out from the library and never returned, whatever they could imagine…

Our first place, second, and honorable mention will published here, on our website, in our eBook, and again in the Best Of Canvas issue coming out later this year.

We want to thank all those who submitted, with special congratulations to our winners.

Andrea Tufekcic is a sixteen-year old junior at Webster Schroeder High school. She spends her days developing and dismissing story arcs, but occasionally one will wriggle out onto paper and become a story. She first began to write when she realized that the world was disappointingly devoid of magic and neat little plots, so she started to make her own.
