Let’s sit down with one of our Word Weaver Writing Contest 3rd place winners, Geoff Le Pard, and find out.


If you follow the blog, you’ll recognize the name Geoff Le Pard as the 1st place winner of our March Word Weaver Writing Contest. That doesn’t mean he gets a free pass to make it as a finalist for this contest. His writing is consistently good, which is why we see him here in the winner’s circle again. It thrills me to have good writers come back and compete, but anyone can win these contests!
