Results of the First Dreamers Flash Contest
Congratulations to the winners of the 2019 Dreamers Flash Fiction and Nonfiction Contest.
In a flash story, it’s important to make every word count, and that’s exactly what all of these authors did!
Ultimately, two authors tied for first place in our first flash fiction and nonfiction contest, splitting the top prize between them. Both authors were published in Issue 4 of the Dreamers Magazine, and online on the Dreamers website.
Additionally, we selected 5 runners-up. Each runner-up received an honorarium of $20 and online publication.
Here’s the winning line-up!
“Three of Jake’s buddies flew directly from Afghanistan into intensive rehab for amputees. Jake got dropped off back home with a medal, a large bottle of anti-depressants, and a referral to a therapist.”
“Some days are yellow, some are blue. I know by heart my two-year-old’s favorite Dr. Seuss book and the rhymes repeat in my mind, maddening, as I drive my sister south on I-5 to a 30 day stay in rehab. This day is yellow and blue, mid-June, cloudless, soaring, framed, now, in dread. Black.”
An Uncaged Bird
Fiction by Thomas Mooney
