Seeing the World in 20/20

Seeing the World in 20/20: A SouthWest Writers Anthology of Award-Winning Stories is now available!

The year 2020 fits Confucius’ curse of “May you live in interesting times.” As the premier writers association in the southwestern part of the country, SouthWest Writers is all about writers helping writers succeed. The annual writing contest is open to anyone. It provides challenges for poets and authors and gives them an opportunity to fly. There were over 230 entries in the 2020 competition, and each entry was reviewed by at least two judges whose published works have received acclaim.

Seeing the World in 20/20 contains award-winning entries from each contest category: Biography/Memoir, Humor, Social Consciousness, Romance, Science Fiction/Fantasy, Mystery, Animals, Philosophy, Historical Fiction, and more. With everyone encouraged to stay home in order to reduce the spread of Covid-19, the pandemic itself became a character in several stories and poems.

For Sale

E-book and paperback editions of the anthology are available on Amazon. Revenue from the sale of Seeing the World in 20/20 will be used to pay for organizational programs such as high quality speakers and presenters at the meetings, classes, and workshops.
