Although this is a UK based website, National Flash Fiction Day (#NFFD on Twitter) has gained traction worldwide. You can click here to find international recognition of the winners.
To be a winner is pleasant, but a WINNAR is a consummation devoutly to be wished.
To select the WINNARS of the Once Upon a Time Writing Contest was akin to finding your favorite puppy in a kennel. Some of them bark loudly to get your attention, some nip at you, some have big puppy eyes and…okay, enough with the simile. It was tough.
After a great deal of consultation with my lovely co-host, SJI Holliday, we FINALLY narrowed it down to three authors.
And without further ado, here are the WINNARS of the Once Upon a Time Writing Contest!
* The winner of the AWAKE Prize Package (Best Adaptation of an Existing Fairytale)
You can read Angela’s reboot of The Little Mermaid, entitled A Mermaid in Texas.
* The winner of the TWIXT Prize Package (Best Original Fairytale)
You can read Mackenzie’s original tale here.
* The winner of the Grand Prize Package
You can read Oliver’s story, Pink Bells.
Much thanks and congratulations to all who entered, who made it impossible for us to decide!
