We are pleased to announce the winner of the winter flash fiction writing contest. Lindsey Hines is the grand prize winner for her story, “The Server.”

Lindsey Hines, Winner
Lindsey Hines, Winner!

The theme was “disrupted,” and Lindsey create a robust sci-fi universe and a compelling moment in less than 1,000 words. Her story was imaginative and compelling, and stood out from the competition.

Lindsey won the $100 Amazon gift card, as well as bragging rights, and her story has been published to the School of Kingdom Writers website! Read it here.

Miriam Lieberkind is this quarter’s runner-up, for her literary fiction piece titled “Numbers.” Miriam explored the way mental illness can change our concept of “disruption.” Miriam will receive the item of her choice from the SOKW store (click).

We’d also like to give an honorable mention to the following authors.

  • Savannah Jane McCrary for “The Birthday Basket”
  • Leanna Hampton for “Don’t Panic”
  • Lia Kethcart for “Songs Upon an August Afternoon”

While these stories didn’t take the prize, they impressed our judges and stood out among their peers.
