June Monthly Micro Winners

Congratulations again to all of the shortlisted authors. Here are the winners!


In the Aftermath of a Supernova by Eleanor Luke

Why we chose it: This has such beautiful imagery whilst looking at a dark and complex theme, and ends with such a startling sentence.


Second Prize Winner: Words From a Time Traveller by Glyn Matthews

Why we chose it: There are some lovely sensory elements to the description that made us feel part of the story. We heard that whistle and feel like it took us on a journey.


People’s Prize Winner: Tinder Encounters of the Fully Disclosed Kind by Jeff Taylor
