Welcome to CFUW Aurora Newmarket
CFUW 2016/17 Short Story Writing Contest 

Competition was very keen in this year’s contest with more than 100 entries. The judges at each level were challenged in their job of narrowing the field and selecting the finalists. Ten stories went to the finalist judges – Ellen Hoffmann, CFUW president, Ted McFadden, editor The Era/The Banner, and our celebrity judge, Jennifer Dance, a Stouffville author – and they chose the three winning entries.
