The Bertie Short List

The Bertie - Shorty Story Contest

I have had a blast reading all of the wonderful entries to The Bertie. The Middle Grade Mafia folks are the official judges, but that didn’t mean they got to have all of the fun! I read through each story before sending them to the judges and I was very impressed. Talk about imagination!

I don’t know how the Mafia managed to narrow it down, but below you will find the finalists. The winners/honorable mentions will be chosen from the names below and announced on May 15th on the Middle Grade Mafia website. If your name is NOT on this list, don’t despair. EVERY entry was entertaining, which is the goal of a good storyteller, and you have created a world that didn’t exist before you put the words on paper. How cool is that??

Keep writing, keep submitting, keep telling stories. I can’t wait to read what you write next!
