Artemis and Orion Writing Contest Winner: The Hunt

Thanks to everyone who entered the Artemis and Orion writing contest!

I loved reading all your stories, and I’m so happy to say that I have a winner. Kimberly Morning’s story “The Hunt” won the $50 to Amazon. Congratulations, Kimberly!

“The Hunt” sets the myth in modern-day Washington, D.C., and casts Artemis as a feminist journalist looking to take down a high-power businessman and playboy, Orion, who turns out to have an unexpected feminist streak himself. Instead of focusing on Orion’s death, Kimberly chose to focus on another aspect of their relationship, which really worked well for her story.

Honorable mentions to Michael Lapallo, who dropped Artemis and Orion in post-apocalyptic New York and made me laugh out loud many times.

And to Kristy Herbeck, whose sultry story included a mythic character I hadn’t even thought might be involved, and whose Apollo dropped some memorable one-liners that keep coming back to me.


Thanks again to everyone who entered—this was so fun! And don’t forget to check out November 2015’s contest, about Apollo’s humble days as a quirky attractive convict farmboy. (Yes, really.)

The prize is the same for November as for October’s contest—a $50 Amazon gift card. I’m working on other ways to handle the prizes, but right now this feels like a safe, uncomplicated, and reliable way to go about it. (And winners don’t have to pay taxes on gift cards . . . I’m always thinking in terms of taxes! A curse of the self-employed, I guess.)
