A Praying Man

August 2011 Flash Story Contest Winners

I’d like to announce the winners of the August 2011 Flash Story contest. And what a month it was. I’m completely blown away with response: 27 wonderful flash stories submitted!

I want to thank authors for sending in quality, well-edited pieces, and for following the prompt (even if loosely).

Anyway, let’s talk business :)

The prompt was “A Praying Man” (pictured here on the right).

Normally, there should be only one winner. However, because I really loved these stories, I decided to announce 3 winners today. I really have to put that donate button before I go under!

Here we go:

# 1: Overall Winner is   with “Strangled”.


# 2: Best Imagery Winner is   with “Sounds from Above”.


# 3: Strongest Emotion is with “Birthday Wish”.


The prize for the Overall Winner is the pre-announced $55; the other two winning prizes are $30 each.

I’ll contact the winners by email to arrange the Paypal payment to them.

I’m truly, truly grateful to all authors and readers who stopped by to vote. Many thanks to all, and let’s begin our September contest!


The prompt for September is: 

A Child Within
