they're going to be the ones to watch for this year."

do the preliminary judging, and for the final judging, we were lucky enough to
secure literary agent Wendy Sherman to be our official guest judge this season."

Wendy Sherman and Associates has an impressive roster of well established,
critically acclaimed and award-winning clients that range from literary to more
commercial, including Nani Power (Crawling at Night), Howard Bahr (The Black
Flower), William Lashner (A Killers Kiss), Liam Callanan (All Saints), and famed
actress Rue McClannahan (My First Five Husbands).

WOW! has received numerous compliments throughout the year from various contestants.
Ubong Abasi-Johnathan from Ontario, Canada, writes, "Your contests help spur some of
us writers who have our hands full with so many other things to make out time for
our writing." Donna Wilkins from New Mexico, says, "This award, and being published
on the WOW website, made it feel official; I really am a writer!" Dianne Greco, from
New York, writes, "Your site is so supportive and warm hearted, I feel like I have
found the sisters I never had! Your personal attention to every detail makes it so
special that I think even the most astute writer would have a hard time putting my
heartfelt gratitude into words. Thanks again for everything. You have given me more
than you know."
