Unfortunately, we could only choose three.
Our judge Catherine Zobal Dent commented on the abundance of talent in the submissions. In the end, she chose these three winners... >drumroll<
Jeanne Wagner with "Self-Portrait as a Supermarket Bouquet"
Amy Rossi with "If You Need Me, I Will Be Over Here Listening to 'Slide It In' on Repeat"
Dinah Cox with "Bun in the Oven"
Congratulations to Jeanne, Amy, and Dinah. We were so impressed with these three writers, and we can't wait to share their work with you.
You can read Jeanne Wagner's flash-prose piece in issue 55 of Hayden's Ferry Review, which will be released in December. Amy Rossi and Dinah Cox will be featured in The Dock later this fall.
