Results of the 2020 Dreamers Flash Contest
Congratulations to the winners of the 2020 Dreamers Flash Fiction and Nonfiction Contest.
Once again, choosing the winners from among so many amazing stories was incredibly hard, but here we are:
Nonfiction by Leanne Schneider
People are moving my sliced and bandaged body from a stretcher to a bed. Deadweight. I feel like deadweight. I can’t move myself. They have to do all the work. I see my mom’s face. Blurred relief upon it. I go back to sleep.
Beneath The Ice
Fiction by Gordon MacLean
“Take’em down to the bay and drown’em,” he said, handing the sack to Jimmy. Tommy and Russell protested, but Jimmy knew better than to cross the old man. He took hold of the sack and made his way to the door.
The Girl Who Didn’t Know What She Knew
AutoFiction by Alan MacLeod
She hesitated, pencil poised over the page, grimacing as if in pain. “No…” she said. “I don’t want to make it real.” I went cold when she said those words. There was such a feeling of sadness and despair in them, especially for this very self-contained, non-expressive youngster. She knew but didn’t know, or didn’t want to know.
