Honorable Mentions

Melissa Goode * A Lack of Oxygen

Comments: You truly capture the essence of despair. The grief at a path that wasn’t possible to choose. It ripped at me.

Ashley Smith 


 You Have No Right

Comments: Nice walk through the mental anguish and despair of a suicide attempt when there seems no other reasonable option. Nice character connection at the end.

Picture the Scenes

Comments: So many different and bizarre elements that paint such an interesting and really funny picture. I love the ending, bringing it back home. A joy to read.

Enemies are Cool

Comments: Nice character portrayal in a very brief story. You really get a feel for the guy’s narcissim and control issues, which despite his better judgement leads to his ultimate demise. Cool.

Flying down to Rio

Comments: Excellent portrayal of the mind of a girl that I would say is about 15-16? I see these as beginnings of chapters of a novel. One to start each chapter. Enjoyed it.
