Kudos to previous fiction contest winners: Beverly Akerman, who won our first Flash Fiction Contest in 2009 for “Pie,” has received multiple awards (the David Adams Prize, the CBC-Scotiabank Giller Prize “Readers’ Choice Top 10” and others) for her collection, “The Meaning of Children.” The collection includes “Pie” and 13 other stories.
Seamus Scanlon’s “As Close as You’ll Ever Be” was named one of the best short story collections of 2012 by Library Journal. Scanlon won our 2011 Short Story Prize for “My Beautiful, Brash, Beastly Belfast,” which is part of the collection.
