PRW Runner-up Tour: Nut, The Forever Lonesome Sky Goddess by Alexandra Perchanidou

The arches around her shone golden with each step she took towards the aisle. This was her happiest day, a day where all the gods and goddesses were not fighting, gossiping, plotting against each other. For once they would all gather and celebrate a day of happiness. A day of a wedding. Nut’s blue hair […]

PRW Runner-up Tour: Not Just Any Girl by Jennifer McCoy

Violent waves swirled and crashed upon the jagged rocks. I flailed my arms and legs, desperate to grab hold of something and pull my head above the surface of the water. A wave crashed over my head and pushed me into another rock. I let out a garbled scream at the painful sting that scratched […]

PRW Runner-up Tour: My Lady’s Wish by Melody Winter

A wish can come in many forms: from a person’s fear, desire, greed, or the willingness to help others. But, the wishes which come from the heart are the strongest and easiest to grant. I wasn’t a typical person to grant a wish, far from it. Not many people knew my kind could grant them. […]

PRW Runner-up Tour: Monkey Qi, Monkey Do by Scott Hughey

I probably should have kicked Monkey out of my study the instant I found him. After all, the last time I saw him, he’d tricked me into granting him immortality. Never let a lower primate see your books. Nor for a second did I believe he cared about Miao Song, a woman who apparently couldn’t […]

Aleksei Volkov Creative Writing Class Ms. Pasternack, Period 2   MY FAMILY HISTORY Thirteen years ago, the only exciting thing to ever happen to Ana and Felix Volkov did.

PRW Runner-up Tour: Lady of the Lake by Summer Wier

  The sun hung high in the sky, pressing beads of sweat from my brow. If only I had a hat to shield myself from the oppressive heat, perhaps I would be more productive. If I was more productive, I could earn two handfuls of rice instead of only one. I dug my fingers into […]

PRW Runner-up Tour: Heavy Hearted by Michelle Hoen

The blood and ichor traveled up his forearms, leaving dull crimson streaks across his hands. The swollen organ in which he sought did not wish to leave its home, but he continued to slice through the hardened arteries and veins. With one final cut, he severed the remaining artery, and withdrew his prize. Several sections […]

PRW Runner-up Tour: Heart of Ice by Kathleen Palm

I kneel in the choosing ring. Pressing my hands to the frozen ground, I stare at the forever-fire pulsing, dancing. The flames as tall as a man roar from within its stone circle, the center of our town, the symbol of life. With a whoosh, a mass of glowing embers scatter into the air. One […]

PRW Runner-up Tour: The Gift of Avalon by Megan Wilson

An upside-down world, where the trees grew from the lake’s surface and the flowers bloomed on long stalks that drifted through the water. Even when above the world was stormy and dark, below, there was always silvery light, glistening and shimmering. Floating castles made of glowing rock, much more delicate and intricate than those of […]

PRW Runner-up Tour: Die Theta Kappa by Michelle Hoehn

  “This is, without doubt, the dumbest thing I’ve ever done,” I proclaimed loudly into the night. “Standing on the bank won’t attract its attention, Riley. You need to wade out into the shallows.” I looked back at Minori, my face a smoldering fury. He sat comfortably on his beach blanket up on the grass, […]
