[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Gentle reminder: humiliation isn’t funny. Remember high school?

OK, that’s my “April Fools” announcement out of the way.

In other news, my new mouse has a scroll wheel again (YAY), it was Forearm Friday at the gym, and I have the results of the popular vote on all three grids!

But it’s not all about the popular vote, folks. We also hand out editorial staff picks. Every week our editors comb through your submissions looking for the best of the best. Picks are based on writing quality, how successful the author is in conveying information, and just plain style. We don’t just hand a pick to our favorite on the grid- it’s got to be independently excellent. In fact, if we’re impressed by several posts on one grid, we’ll give them all picks! If nothing stood out for us on another grid, we’ll hold off entirely. If you’re curious what earns a staff pick, scroll back through our winners post archives and check out some examples.

Keep scrolling down to check out who won the popular vote on all three grids. If you earned the highest number of votes in any challenge, you are this week’s crowd favorite! If you came in first, second or third, you get “top three” honors. Grab your badge from our sidebar!

If you’re lost in the middle of the grid and wondering how you can get a little more feedback on your posts, check out our membership perks!

Everybody: before you go, please take some time to leave your favorites a little love in the comments.

Looking for your badge? The fiction|poetry, nonfiction and microstories challenges all have the same winner, staff pick, and top three badges. It doesn’t clutter up our sidebar, and they’ll still look pretty on yours![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_separator][vc_column_text]

Weekend moonshine grid opens today at 6 p.m. eastern time

If your arms are as noodly as mine, typing is a pretty big challenge right now. But that’s ok! The moonshine grid accepts any post. Smash your face on the keyboard a few times, find a great picture or list in your archives, or catalogue your eating disasters all weekend, starting at 6pm Eastern US time tonight! Natalie’s gonna kill me for this one, but she has to catch me first![/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]PSA: The moonshine grid is also a great place to put your experiments with this month’s new poetry slam and nonfic know-how (the n/kn thing is killing me there, I don’t know how many times I can type that)![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_separator][vc_column_text]

Congratulations to the crowd favorites at yeah write #259

The thumbnails are now sorted in order of most votes to fewest. Ties in the overall number of votes are broken by number of editor votes.

Congratulations if you’re at or near the top! Writing well is hard work, and we’re honored you’ve chosen us this week to showcase your entry.

If you’re at or near the bottom, don’t be discouraged. You’re in the right community for learning and growing as a writer, and we are always available with resources for those who ask nicely.

To our readers and voters: thank you! See you next week.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]
