Local 15 yr old places third in B.C. contest

‘I didn’t think I even had a chance in the competition’

Fifteen-year-old Erin Spence of Parksville recently placed third in the provincewide Junior Authors Short Story Writing Contest.

Her winning story Snow Globes is a vivid, touching tale that goes deeply into a tender, healing moment shared by a mother and her young son as they remember the husband and father who has passed away.

About placing third in the Junior Authors contest, Spence said: “I am very happy to have placed third. I didn’t think I even had a chance in the competition.”

This year, 58 stories were submitted from 17 municipalities across the province.

Kyra Wilson, a 14-year-old writer from Qualicum Beach, placed 16th in the same category with her story‚ The Silent Crash.
