Every year, the judging session for the Boise Weekly Fiction 101
contest gets heated as panel members champion their favorite stories. This year was the 16th annual contest, and we're excited to announce our remarkable judges have selected winners from a record-breaking 180 entries, which included classic themes of love, forgiveness, remembrance and nature jockeying with those ejected from the collective unconscious. You can check out the top picks on pages 6-9, but the fun doesn't stop there. Join us Thursday, Jan. 4, at Rediscovered Books
starting at 7 p.m. for the annual Boise Weekly Fiction 101 Reading Party, where we'll invite authors to read their winning entries and enjoy snacks and drinks from The Basque Market
. Stop by to keep your inner story junkie happy.
