Host Suzanne LaGrande interviews the winners of this year's Sledgehammer Writing Contest, a competition that combines writing and scavanger hunting. For the contest writers converged at a central location in Portland and received their first writing prompt and scavenger hunt clues. From there they headed out to several locations around the city to gather all four writing prompts, and then had 36 hours to write the best fiction piece possible. Ali McCart of Indigo Editing & Publications is also a guest.
This year's winners are:
"No Apocalypse in the Rose City" by Leanne & Andy Baldwin

"Exalted and Extinguished" by Lisa Galloway
