Magic Valley writer wins Idaho Magazine award


By Jay Michaels

Twin Falls, Idaho - A Magic Valley writer received an award from Boise-based 'Idaho Magazine' in Twin Falls Thursday.

Kitty Fleischman, publisher of Idaho Magazine, presented the 'Judge's Choice Award’ to Wes Scantlin of Twin Falls, for this year's January Fiction Contest.

His story 'The Terrible Twosome' tells the Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn inspired adventure of two boys who raft down the Snake River near the Perrine Bridge.

Scantlin says winning the Idaho Magazine contest was a complete surprise, and he had no idea that somebody else would like his short story that well.
