Junior wins 2nd place in short story contest

Santa Catalina School junior Anna Yeh won second place in the Central Coast Writers’ high school short story contest.

Anna says her story, Wishing Bottles, is about “a father-daughter relationship concerning illness and alcoholism.” Her award came with a $200 prize.

Contestants had to write stories responding to a photo prompt of a message in a bottle washed up on a beach. The contest drew 60 submissions from juniors and seniors throughout Monterey County.

You can read Anna’s story on the Central Coast Writers website.
