DOWNEY - Writers' Workshop West's recent fiction competition was unique in that all three winning stories were about young women.Yolanda Adele's "My Unique Party" won first prize. It was a comic treatment of a woman rescued from feelings of dejection and self-pity by her friends, Faith and Hope. Second place winner was Carol Kearns for "Space Shuttle Karma," a comic/drama about a young woman's life-changing event precipitated by the historic last flight of the space shuttle Endeavour over Downey. The third place story, "Echoes of the Brill" written by Margaret Hehman-Smith, tells of a girl's search for stardom in New York only to realize that her life's purpose lay in a faraway land. Writers' Workshop West invites new members and visitors to their meetings the third Tuesday of each month at 7:30 p.m. For information, call (562) 862-3106.
