Congratulations to winner Kristyn Bacon. The restrained prose of her enigmatic entry, The Widow, seduced us from the first word.

Her fiction and nonfiction pieces have been published in print and online. She currently lives in Berlin, Germany with her husband and dog.

Congratulations to Kristyn, who wins a full Manuscript Assessment worth £320.

Cherilyn Hearn, author of the beautifully written The Senator’s Daughters.

Cherilyn Hearn was born and raised in San Diego, California, but now waits and creates, raising her family in Southeast Kansas, with her husband, three children and more than a few animals. Her work and writing interests include fiction novels, non-fiction rants, research collections, children’s limerick and unusual cookbooks. Various titles can be found on Amazon, including The Quiet Republican and Aunt Snow. If she could do anything, Cherilyn would live in a flat in NYC, survive almost exclusively on Starbucks tall, skinny, soy lattes and never drive a car again. But for now, she’s on the farm.
