Every year, Sunstone sponsors a fiction contest funded by the generosity of an anonymous donor.
Today, we’re pleased to announce the winners of the 2017 Sunstone Fiction Contest.
1st Place: “Tower,” by Ryan McIlvain. On the heels of his father’s suicide, an aspiring writer reinterprets a fateful home teaching visit.
2nd Place: “Jesus Christ (Almost) Visits the Mormons,” by Ryan Shoemaker. In this comic story, Jesus meets his match when he tries to give a talk at the Burbank 4th Ward.
3rd Place: “420 North,” by Alex Peterson. A drive into Sanpete County becomes a wrestle for sanity. Is that the Spirit whispering? Or the devil?
Sunstone subscribers can look forward to reading these stories in future issues of the magazine.
