Which includes a Mark Starlin special! That guy nobody knows is running for president, who also writes fiction as a side gig. 🀣

πŸ’š Thank you, Brian & Winston! πŸ’š I feel happy, surprised and honoured to be the winner of the sixth Lunar Award edition πŸ†. This was a season with lots of entries and I'm sure that it wasn't an easy pick. Congratulations to all the participants πŸ‘, I'll have some serious reading to do in the next days as I want to catch up with every single entry.

Thanks as well, Brian, for the kind feedback, you have a talent for analysing stories and I'm sure that every fiction writer would benefit from working with you. There's nothing better for growing as a writer than receiving constructive feedback! The more I write here, the more I realise how much I need support.

Thank you for creating this constructive and harmonious space for fiction on Substack. We need more people like you to turn this into a happy and thriving community! ✨

Thank you for both of your submissions this season, Sam! Your story "Message from a Chosen One" made it past my first round of judging, and I read it more than once. I look forward to more of your work.

One Wish was meant to be a light, one-shot story, but Nilara is part of a developing series, so let's pick that one! Thank you!
