Sept 2019 Micro Fiction Results
We’ve had another great response to the latest stories and received just under 200 votes this month. The two winning stories were so close and swapped positions in the top spots repeatedly and were neck and neck a lot of the time. In the end, the first place story won by just 2 votes. So huge congratulations to both our winning authors and to all who were shortlisted.

Plus the annual RW Flash Fiction Prize closes in October and there’s cash prizes for all 10 shortlisted authors, with publication in the paperback and ebook anthology.
