    No seriously. 3 Pros and 3 Joes sounds great.

    Not really, we probably won't pick more than one from a single person to go in the final vote though.

    I'm going past just a title and pushing a concept. Make it a two sided chapbook. Side one will have the Clegg, Keene and Garton stories, The flip side the contest winners. Side one title The Authors the flip side The Wannabes.

    When I win can I get a free chapbook too?

    I like Ri9ch's flipside idea, but I say Joes on one side and Pros on the other. Rich can have the free chapbook!!

    That sounds fair to me if they do a two sided chapbook with a different title.

    To expand on my title on the very top it should say FROM THE WRITERS CORNER, then under that on each side the individual titles and just tjhe last names of the contributors. I like Pros and Joes too, nice and simple.

    I like the ideas so far. Have a couple myself, as well:

    Todays best and Tomorrow's Future

    That could also be simplified to Today and Tomorrow, which was what initially popped into my head, though that might be a little too simplified.

    Or perhaps something along the lines of Reader's Choice, Reader's Pick, Reader's Favorites or something like that.

    I'm sure I'll have more ideas later, though who knows if they'll be any good, lol

    In keeping with a cemetery theme, and since there will be six stories, maybe:
    Six Feet Under

    or maybe:
    Six Stories Under
    (Not sure if this one makes sense though)

    I like "Six Feet Under" for its simplicity and association with the grave.
