News/Interviews

~ Well, yay for social media – Somehow, I didn’t know that my piece placed in the 2020 BC Federation of Writers flash fiction contest until someone tweeted a congratulations! 

A SPECIAL MENTION AND SECOND PLACE IS GIVEN TO: “WISH YOU WELL” BY ANNELIESE SCHULTZ
“A powerful piece.” – Judge, Karen Schauber “Beautiful, poignant, and heart-wrenching, this story is masterfully crafted, hitting all the right notes with neither embellishment nor extra word. As flash fiction, it is concision at its best. There is an elegance in how the subject is treated and paced. And although this is a theme that has been done, if not overdone, here, it engages the reader with finesse—in self-reflection and without confrontation, presenting keen insight into the human condition, and pushing boundaries in fresh and unexpected ways. Most expertly, and importantly in flash fiction, it sticks the landing, leading the reader to an ending that smoulders.”
