Winner of the 43rd Writing Contest for Flash Fiction (2017)
Miah Jeffra of San Francisco, CA has won the New Millennium Flash Fiction Prize for “Growl.”
Miah will receive $1,000, a certificate to mark the success, and publication both online and in print.
Miah’s story, ‘Growl,’ pays homage to that most primal noise. It is a reminder that inside all of us lives an animal, and in the moments our passions are most inflamed — by anger, by hunger, by lust — the animal must be heard.
