We are pleased to present the stories from the 2020 and 2021 Writing Contests in an audio format! Each of the entries were judged based on their clarity, spelling, grammar, creativity, and impact. We received so many fantastic entries and the judging process was difficult.
The entries were produced for an NLS Talking Book player for easy navigation. These versions of the entry will not have navigation points, but for the entries with chapters and parts you will hear a notification indicating how the entry is marked. Excluding the entries from Edward Rizzuto and Toni Horton, the narrator of the selected stories is our studio volunteer, Florence Nash. Here are our Writing Contest winners!
