The High School Creative Writing Club would like to congratulate Lynnea Mileusnich for winning the inspirational genre in the Clean Fiction Magazine writing contest. She won a cash prize as well as a two-page feature for her short story that will be published in the upcoming Spring Edition of the magazine. This was not a student contest, and placed Lynnea up against professional, published authors. Only four to five authors are selected for each edition, and I'm proud to say Lynnea took one of those spots!

Please take a moment to congratulate her for this accomplishment. Her writing is going to take her places!

If you want to read her winning short story, you can order your copy of the Clean Fiction Magazine Spring Edition coming up soon on Amazon or follow Lynnea's writing journey at her website:
