My Story ALMOST Won Fifth Place


See my next post.


Published by


For over twenty-five years, I've taught elementary grades, high school, and county special education classes. Now I am a field supervisor for teachers working toward their teaching credentials. I also teach writing classes in Dublin and Pleasanton, California. I have won 5 awards in short story contests, My stories are published in The California Writers Club Literary Review, and several anthologies including four times in Las Positas College collections. I have several book projects, but the two that have my immediate attention are HADA'S FOG, which is women's fiction, LILLI, a YA novel, and NORMAN IN THE PICTURE, a paranormal mystery. I have published an anthology WRITTEN ACROSS THE GENRES that includes writings from members of my writing classes and other writers. It's available on Amazon and Kindle.

  1. Congratulations, Julaina. Very prestigious place to be — even almost fifth! I ditto the question above — where can I find it?


  2. Thank you all, but my new post today explains why I actually can’t reap the rewards. However, I’m very pleased that I actually placed 5th out of 1000. Knowing that is a reward in itself. Also, I’ve learned to be more organized when I send out my stories. I had forgotten what story I had submitted and when.


  3. To answer questions about where to find the story…it’s the first story in this year’s California Writers Club Literary Review and for those of you who don’t receive the review, I’ll email you a copy.
