NH Writer's Project Fiction Slam

Last night we had fun at the Nashua regional contest for the NH Writer's Project Fiction Slam. Held at Fody's, there were a half-dozen people vying for the win here, to go on to the state competition. Each person reads a 3-minute original story, and they receive feedback and a score from the judges.

Amazing talent from the competitors, and exceptional critique provided by the judges of literary light.
