And the January Flash Fiction Contest Winner is…

Lani Carroll

Lani won with her story “Mid-Autumn Moon.” The prompt for this contest was based on Xochimilco, specifically Santana Barrera’s chinampa, sometimes known as the Island of Dolls. You can read about it here, here and here. Sleep well!

Participants were required to build their story around the concept of an island of dolls. Nearly 50 signed up, 31 finished.

In addition to Lani’s winning tale, Damien Walters Grintalis came in second with “Wednesday’s Child,” her sixth top-three placing. Third Place was “Build-A-Dolly,” by Ken Liu.

Congratulations, fellas!
