CL Fiction Party 2014 

The 2014 CL / WRITE CLUB Atlanta Fiction Contest Word Fight Rekindle Your New Year's Hangover Party on January 9 at the Highland Inn Ballroom had four things going for it: a wordy name, stellar stories, Larceny Bourbon cocktails, and Jeffrey Butzer. Winners D.C. Hodgens, Kate Sweeney, and Alex Gallo-Brown read their winning stories from this year's Fiction Contest issue. With the largest crowd in the history of the contest, everyone was a winner even if they lost the battle.
