“Recently I took a few writing classes at the local community college and started putting down stories about my past. With great trepidation, I submitted one to the Ageless Authors Contest as a sense of relief and pride came over me. I had actually created something that I felt worthy of an audience. The result of the contest almost didn’t matter. Of course, I received an additional and exciting benefit when the piece I submitted was recognized for quality.”
