Ireland's Fish Publishing International One Page Prize
My flash "Like No One's Watching" was shortlisted for Ireland's 2009 Fish Publishing International One Page Prize. Alas, that's as far as the story got. Congratulations go to Bernadette M. Smyth for her "In The Car" which won the first prize of one thousand Euros, that's approximately $1,400!!! Congratulations also to the runner-ups. A big shout out also to Fish Publishing who do a tremendous job with these writing contests and their Annual Fish Anthology; the anthology always filled with first-class flash, poetry, and short stories. They and their patrons, such revered Irish writers as Roddy Doyle and Colum McCann, have helped launch the careers of many fine emerging poets and writers. Kudos all round.
