Writing Contest Winners!

The Mothering Matters writing contest has been a great success! With over 60 entries in two age groups, it was truly difficult for our judges to choose just a handful of winners. We would like to thank all the authors who submitted their unique stories. What talent we have here in Switzerland!  Click on a winner’s name below to see his or her story. The winners’ prizes will be posted to them shortly.

Mothering Matters would like to thank Orell Füssli and Rose Haechler Galle of Fire-works Ceramic Painting & Art for their generous prize donations. Winners can have fun browsing in Orell Füssli, Zürich’s finest English bookshop or painting their own pottery in a cozy atmosphere at the Füürwärch studio (see ad on homepage).

Look out for our poetry competition next spring!

  1. Thanks for this great contest! My children had a great time writing their stories. I’m also impressed that there were more than 60 entries.
    I’m curious how the prizes will work out for the ties.
    Thanks again!
