“Your Story” Contest Entries

four-leaf_clover2Today our team read through submissions for a short story competition. Yet again I was amazed by the number of Leprechaun stories that we received! I rarely find myself contemplating leprechauns, but apparently some writers out there are fascinated by them. Out of 901 entries, 7 of them were about leprechauns. While 7 doesn’t sound like a lot, it’s a lot more than I would expect to receive. When you consider percentages it’s roughly .8% of our submissions– nearly one percent! Considering how rare leprechauns are you wouldn’t really expect them to be 1% of anything. But I guess they’re full of surprises.
