    I know that the sentence competitions have a page in the magazines where you list the top ten winners. Do you list the top five, ten, or just the winner for the 750 word stories?

    Okay, I think my comment/post problem is fixed, but I still have another issue. I submitted my response to this prompt via email, in accordance with the rules above, but neglected to include my name. Is there a way I can fix it without creating a double submission?
