SignumBadge_90x90Click over to the contest home page to watch a video in which I talk about the winners and to download a .pdf of the winning entries.

Week 2 was: Here be Dragons!​​
indexDuring this second week, we accepted flash fiction stories of up to 500 words that dealt with dragons! We got exciting adventures that considered what type of dragon was being hunted, why it was being hunted, what was the motivation, and what was the outcome? Our writers asked: Is our hero prepared, unprepared, self-deceived about being prepared? What’s the dragon’s point of view? Several surprised us with a twist!

LITERARY PRIZE WINNER: Alana Asby Roberts, “I Love Thee Not”

First Runner-up: Stacy Ericson, “Hear The Lonesome Whistle Blow”

Second Runner-up: Anne Whitver, “Alchemy”

POPULAR WINNER: Brice Odom, “The Dragon and the Brave”

Popular First Runner-up: Brenton Dickieson, “Saving the World Left Handed”

Popular Second Runner-up: Alexis Heit, “It’s a Girl!”

Here I will post links to some that didn’t win, but earned well-deserved honorable mentions:
