Yesterday was 2018, today it’s a whole new year, and our December flash contest asked participants to imagine what happens when something that was illegal or prohibited suddenly becomes available. Our two winners, Taylor Skaalrud and Erin Vance, took this prompt in very different directions, though both centred their pieces around the holidays. Erin’s political and poignant short story will be revealed later today, and Taylor’s festive ode will be posted tomorrow.
If you want to get in on our monthly flash contests, head over to our Patreon page and sign up to donate $2/ month (or more, if you want!). And that’s it– every month we will post a new prompt and the top three winners will be featured here on our blog!
