The steady trickle of queries on when are the results of the contest going to be declared that we received over the last few weeks made one thing clear – the final list of selected stories in the L&C Short Stories Contest (Anthology) were being eagerly looked forward to, by the contestants.
We must say, the number of entries we received were much more than expected, which not only makes us feel encouraged and delighted at the growing popularity of Learning and Creativity e-journal, it also reaffirms our faith that the eagerness to weave imagination with words is vibrant among young authors. We received entries from people who are already in a writing career, from authors, some of them first timers, who are in professions not connected with writing fiction and yet keen to express their creative spirit, from college goers and even school students!
The stories have been selected after rigorous scanning by esteemed editor Mr A K Nanda, who has edited several books in his 52+ years of editing and writing experience. A Fulbright Fellow, Mr Nanda has, through his long innings as editor, been associated with publications produced by Delhi University, Indian Council of Historical Research, Indian Council of Philosophical Research, Roli Books, Motilal Banarsidass, among others.
