New Millennium Award for Flash Fiction

Carla Myers of Boalsburg, Pennsylvania for Seven Ravens

Nearly every time we choose a Flash Fiction winner, we discuss the inherent challenge of this category. The nickname is apt: In a flash, an author must create an entire story arc, impart some existential truth, and weave imagery bright and sharp enough to imprint on the reader’s mind. Done well, it is a beauty to behold. “Seven Ravens” checks all these boxes and more.
