Flash Fiction Contest Resultsby Fringe Magazine, Fringe Magazine • 12.31.2012
Today we are pleased to publish Nalini Abhiraman’s “Feeds,” winner of our inaugural flash fiction contest. About “Feeds,” guest judge Steve Almond says, “Lyric and evocative. A micro examination of how our mind and hearts — our very sense of life — is being shaped by technology. The piece finds the despair lurking just beneath our technological thrall. The prose is poetic in its precision.”
Nalini wins $350. Runner-up G.C. Cunningham wins $100 for his story “My First Marine Corp Essay,” and third place finisher Jeff Bakkensen earns $50 for “Three Speeches.”
A big fat thank you to all who entered; we were honored to read so many fine stories. And thanks to Steve Almond for guest judging. Make it your 2013 resolution to read his books. Seriously.
In the comments section below, let us know what you think of “Feeds.”
