Our winner for our short story contest is Stephen O’Connor’s “Work, Music, and Love.”
Here is what our judge Kelley Eskridge had this to say about our winning story:
“For me, character is the engine of story, and I felt like I was inside Arty’s head and heart from the first sentence of “Work, Music and Love.” I appreciated the specific details that let me see Arty’s world and the people around him through his eyes. I enjoyed taking this ride with him, and I’m glad he found the music!”
O’Connor will be awarded a $100 cash prize for his winning story. Congratulations Stephen!
