The Friends of the Milton Free Public Library are pleased to announce the 2021 winners of the high school Fun Fan Fiction contest.
Emma Richards won 3rd place and $50 for her addition of a magic necklace in Cinderella. Emma hit the mark in writing in the same "voice" as the writer. She used dialog very well. Her portrayal of the stepsisters was contemporary and comical.
Lyric Picard garnered ^nd place and $75 for her excellent plot twist to Snow White. In Lyric's story, the evil stepmother creates a spell to make Snow White unattractive. This well-written switch concludes that Snow White is still beautiful because she has an inner beauty that triumphs over all.
Our first place winner is Amber Dunkel. She won $100 by adding a character to Sleeping Beauty. The thorns surrounding the sleeping princess ensure that the prince who saves Beauty is more than a vapid savior; in fact he has depth and morals. Amber used clear dialog to further her plot and make it engaging to the reader.
This year the Friends were impressed with the quality of the language used in all of the entries. They also appreciated the creative efforts of all the students in this exceptional time. Great work, students!
