For our first go at submitting to literary awards (we missed the Pushcart deadline, unfortunately), we’ve chosen the following stories for the 2016 Write Well Awards, sponsored by the Silver Pen Writers Association:

“The Theme Pastoral,” by Kristen Gipson

“Hollowed Onions,” by Emily Walling

“All the Hippies Are Dying,” by Gwendolyn Kiste

All three stories appear in Volume 1, Issue 1 (the only issue eligible, as it was the only one published in 2015).

Next year, we plan to submit to the Pushcart, Write Well Award, and The Best Small Fictions, an anthology put together by Queens Ferry Press.
