Workshop Winner Announcement

Workshop Winner Announcement was created by Woodclaw
(super)Ladiesand Gentlemen,
The Fall 2020 workshop is officially over and the winning story, accruing a staggering 28% of the total votes is:
The Comicmancer by Hikerangel
Now, although the workshop allowed only one vote, I know that a lot of peoplewished they could vote for multiple stories (heck,I cast my vote only this morning because I was really unsure which story to pick).
Moreover, the purpose of a workshop is get as many people as possible to write and I'm really happy that this particular one had such a big turnover of writers, including some debue pieces.

Stay safe everybody and keep writing.

Congratulations Hikerangel,a well deserved victor

Personally I am extremelysatisfied with my result. Given that my entry was a collection of integrative chapters stuck together about a relatively obscure celebrity I was hoping to get at least a couple of votes and not come dead last. Instead I came a very respectable fourth and got some positive comments which is all I could have wished for.

Although one comment that’s featured on the fount page doesn’tseem to have made it to the story itself, any idea what went wrong?

It's probably a database issue. I'll forward it.

What really impressed me was that all the stories had 1500 to 2300 reads in just two weeks.  That is great, even if only 1 in 20 readers voted for their favorite.   Makes it all worthwhile for me, so much so that I am starting another story that I plan to string out and maybe finish the other story that I have been working on for 3 years.
