Cafe Writing Contest - 3rd Place - Susan Wiener

Our first writing contest was a great success and as a special thanks to our winners we will be showcasing them here all week - Writing in the children's genre is not as easy as it may sound, so these folks deserve a big round of applause.

Here is our 3rd place winner, Susan Wiener, with her entry "Are You Meant to be a Writer?"

Suzan L. Wiener has had many articles on writing, short stories, poems and shorter pieces published in major publications such as Mature Living, Mature Years, Imagination Cafe, Complete Woman, Canadian Writer's Journal, The New Writer, Cross&Quill, FellowScript, The Writer's Ezine, Mocha Memoirs, NEB Publishing, Saturday Evening Post, MetroSeven (Australia), Family Circle, Woman's World, etc. She has won several contests.
