Help us ring in the new year by celebrating the finalists for our 2020 Summer Short Story Award for New Writers! Guest judge Kali Fajardo-Anstine noted the particularly strong set of stories for this year’s contest, and we absolutely agree. Thank you to all of our wonderful submitters. We are forever grateful that you trust us with your words. And remember, our Winter Short Story Award is open until Jan. 31st, with guest judge Helen Oyeyemi!
