July 19 Micro Fiction Comp Results
We received 226 votes this time around and it has been a really close contest. The stories in the top 3 spots have been constantly changing but voting is now closed and we have our winners. Congratulations to these writers and everyone that made the long and shortlists.

I’d like to give a special mention as well to Nothing But the Rain by Lucinda Hart, which moved in and out of the top two spots all the way through the voting and missed out on second place by just 2 votes in the end.
That’s it for this month. The next Monthly Micro Fiction competition prompt will be live on the website on 5th August.
