We like to encourage our members to enter their work in contests around the country. These challenges help authors to display their excellence on a national level. The National Federation of Press Women is a sister organization dedicated to encouraging literary excellence. Several SWW members won first place at the local level, which made their work eligible for the national competition.
Congratulations to these SWW members!
