Congratulations Margaret Finnegan!


The Rose City Sisters 2009 “Story of the Year” is “Sweet Revenge” by Margaret Finnegan. Her story is a darkly comic cautionary tale about a man who eats the last piece of cake.

More than two dozen contributors were eligible to vote for their favorite of the seven finalist stories. The votes were tallied on Monday, January 25.

Margaret will get a certificate (suitable for posting on the refrigerator where slices of cake are sometimes stored) and a rose quartz-and-pearl necklace and earrings designed by Jill Pearson for Wasabi, a Pasadena-based jewelry company.

To learn more about Margaret, visit her website or read her blog, Finnegan Begin Again.

Congratulations to all the finalists:

Belinda’s Birthday by Petrea Burchard

Downsized by Janet Aird

Get Gone by Cindie Geddes

Glorietta and Red Bob Come to Terms by Laura L Mays Hoopes

A Losing Game by Bonnie Schroeder

Quicky by Desireé Zamorano

(Okay, fun’s over. Please submit more stories.)

  1. Thank you. All of the Rose City Story finalist stories were such fun and such great examples of what can be done in 1,000 words or less. I am honored and humbled.
