Before deciding the winning entries, we take a look on the following objectives;
Grammar, Technicality to rules, Relevance to the theme and Overall construction of the story.
Now let's start announcing the winning entries!
The story of the week goes to...
The winning entry started off strong and ended strong but with two different atmosphere to it. The first half being the ominous feeling of something not being right and it almost tickled me a bit into thinking what kind of freedom is this, but at the end we get to see what the poem is about; a reflection of our messed up society and the importance of our freedom to expression. Great entry this week.
Other than the winning entries, we award these two runner-up entries for coming so close!
The first runner up entry goes to...
A great contender to this week's theme. The commonality of this theme used by the writer is something but marvelous because even if it's common it was a great theme to use because it tugged the right heartstrings with it's fast-paced flashback storytelling that ended with it's strongest point; the ending.
The second runner up entry goes to...
Another great contender for it's simplicity in theme but masterful in building the atmosphere of the story and the conveyance of emotions throughout the main character's inner monologue grabbed a lot of emotions towards me while I was reading. Anyone who would read this would feel hurt because you would feel the grief and joyful sadness the main character is feeling, regardless of experience.
In addition to the winning entries, our weekly honourable mention goes to this story by:
