HAPPY NATIONAL FLASH FICTION DAY!
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 celebrate NFFD, I teamed up with renowned British Flash Fiction writer SJI Holliday to bring you the Once Upon a Time Flash Fiction contest.
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.
To see the full and magnificent details of the prizes offered, go here. Thanks again to the generosity of Jessica Gray and Diane J. Reed!
And without further ado, here are the WINNARS of the Once Upon a Time Writing Contest!
