Million Writers Award (Flash Stories Sneaked In)

Here is an interesting and longish list of the best online short stories and magazines published in 2008. (Scroll down below what looks like the end of the article to see the nominees.)

This award is administered by storySouth, a respected literary magazine. The ten story finalists will be named in May.


The Status of Flash Fiction in the Award: The rules stated that the stories must be more than 1000 word long--which the editor knew would and had caused grumbling--so Flash Fiction Online had little chance of placing a story. However, a few flash stories from other publications sneaked in under the editor's nose, but he took the news philosophically:

...My first instinct was to kick out these stories. However, the simply [sic] truth is they are good stories, so what the hell, let's list them....

Here is his whole statement on this matter.
