The first round of judging in the Prompt Response contest was done by ACFW members from out of state. They chose four finalists, whose entries were then sent to the co-directors of Florida Christian Writers Conference, Eva Marie Everson and Mark Hancock, to choose the winners. All judging was done blind, so no judge knew the name of any entrant.
The fourth place finalist was our own Roxanne Gray. In third place was Shellie Arnold, a Word Weaver formerly from the Orlando chapter and now living in Ohio. Jennifer Odom, who is a Word Weaver and an ACFW Central Florida member from Gainesville took second place.
And our winner was Jericha Kingston, an ACFW member from Brunswick, Georgia. Jericha had a great conference and took Ramona Richards’s advanced fiction course.
Start planning now for next year’s conference, February 24–28, 2016.by
