Hey PSoupers & friends,

I had a wonderful time reading your fantastic prose & poetry. This was a difficult contest to judge. Extremely hard. Such a great outpouring of raw emotion and simplistic creativity! The top winners are:

Contest Winner Medal

Contest Winner Medal3The OutlandsCatie Lindsey

Will be dodging off of the SOUP again. Work constraints and other various writing ventures have been keeping me busy, as of late. Please read all these wonderful writers. They are talented, imaginative and obviously, impressive!
