First of all – Wow, I am so incredibly impressed by the quality of the submissions that were entered into this contest. I’m also humbled to have so many amazing writers who follow this blog and who’ve bothered to enter for this contest. Thank you from the bottom of my heart to all of you who have participated!
Below are the very talented entrants and their creative pieces featuring a wolf!
“Wolf Mountain” – Jessica E. Larsen submitted this fantastic story about a young girl hiking out in nature and meeting one of these kings of the canines. Highly recommended read from an awesome lady. 😀
“Running with the Wolves” – Orkidedatter submitted this really wonderful poem paired with original artwork for the contest, so a double-whammy here! Definitely worth a visit and a read. She’s a true artist.
“Snowfall Sentinels” – Tom submitted a short story that he had written about two wolves carried away in dialogue for participation in the competition. It’s one of his older pieces but I’d never specified it needed to be new. It’s a great read, very unique and sometimes funny. He has a way with dialogue, “When you muse, you lose!”.
“Goddess of Prey” – Taylor Grace submitted a poem. Reader discretion is advised on this one! This is a hot and steamy, borderline erotic take on a wolf-woman looking for her next “meal” shall we say. 😉
“The Lone Wolf” – Brad Osborne submitted an informative and interesting article about lone wolves and wolf packs, which is definitely worth a read if you find the creatures as insightful and interesting as I do.
“The Lone Wolf – A Poem” – Brad Osborne also submitted a poetic entry deserving of attention. He really got into the mood for this prompt and hit us with a double whammy to showcase his multi-faceted talents.
“The Wolf’s Howling” – Kristian, one of my favorite collaborative blogging buddies submitted a wonderful and emotional poem about a lone wolf feeling like an outsider. Definitely worth a view.
All of the writers who had contributed a piece of writing based on a wolf for this contest had their names placed on to pieces of paper and the winner was drawn at random from the inside of a glass after given a good shake. I didn’t want to have to choose whose was the “best” so this seemed most fair to me. However, I do believe that this winner’s story would have been a heavy competitor if I were to have gone the route of ranking them anyways because it was an absolutely fantastic story! Certainly one of my favorites by her.
