Flash Fiction Contest Winner Announced!

Post by Kenwood on Wed Nov 24, 2010 11:32 am

From the home page:

Earlier this year, we began hosting flash fiction contests. It started out monthly then moved to bi-monthly. It was a lot of fun and we got to read some great tales. First Place winners received a prize of their choosing, usually a book or fiction magazine. Of those winners, an ultimate winner was then chosen to be included in our upcoming issue #3.

Because we had read a lot of the winning stories and didn't want any kind of bias to play a role in our decision, we asked fellow writer and friend—and musician (check out Broken Hope and Lupara)—Jeremy Wagner to judge the stories and pick his favorite. He never participated in any of the monthly/bi-monthly contests and read all stories anonymously.

He chose Steven Pirie's "Ruth Across the Sea" as his top choice. You'll be able to read the story in a little over a month!

Jeremy also chose two runners-up in Amanda C. Davis's "In Memoriam" and "Like Origami in Water," by Damien Walters Grintalis. They will receive Amazon gift certificates kindly donated by Jeremy.

Congrats, guys! And Happy Thanksgiving to all.
