We had the pleasure of teaming up with FAN EXPO Canada for our first ever Flash Fiction Competition. We challenged writers to create a short story (750 words max.) in 72 hours. They picked the genre and setting but the story must include a very specific item. The catch? They won’t find out what that item is until the competition officially opens.
Our lovely judges—authors Robert J Sawyer, Adrienne Kress, Lesley Livingston, J.M Frey, Nancy Kilpatrick and Mark Askwith; and the Editorial Director of HarperCollins Canada, Jennifer Lambert—deliberated this past weekend as FAN EXPO Canada celebrated their 25th anniversary and the winners were chosen!
- 1st Place – It’s Not Love by Dallas Nichols
- 2nd Place – A Silent Thought by Matt Parker
- 3rd Place - Forsythia Chang’s Exorcise Plan in 5 Easy Steps by Thomas Yeung
