Reprint of Ripley Patton’s “Traveling By Petroglyph”

Ripley Patton’s “Traveling By Petroglyph”, originally published in our October 2008 issue, has been picked up as a reprint in Flash Me magazine. Congratulations, Rip!

Flash Fiction Online story wins First Annual Micro Award!

This is cross-posted from News and Headlines, since it’s both news (which goes on News and Headlines) and site-specific (which goes here).

Congratulations to Bruce Holland Rogers for winning the First Annual Micro Award with his story, “Reconstruction Work“!

We published this story in our very first issue, barely making the Micro Award deadline. It has also been noted on cnn.com — which is, I think, only the second reference to Bruce on CNN (the other being a book review).

Robert Laughlin is the brainpower and administrator behind the Micro Awards. George Keithley and Clark Brown were judges for the first award; the second award will be judged by Stefanie Freele, Benjamin J. Biesek, and Len Fulton. (Remember Stefanie? She wrote the (now Pushcart-nominated) “James Brown is Alive and Doing Laundry in South Lake Tahoe” in our January issue — the month after Bruce published his award-winning story.)

Congratulations to Bruce, and many thanks to Robert Laughlin and the rest of the Micro Award judges!

Blog Post I liked

I particularly liked this blog post about Elizabeth Creith’s “Stone the Crows“. It’s not earth-shattering, but it’s real.
