2023 Postcard Fiction Contest

We had so much fun reading your entries to our first flash fiction contest that we thought, "Hey, let's see what new stories are waiting to get written in 2023." And just to keep things interesting (we know you love a challenge), we're calling on you to write a story in 250 words or less -  like you could fit it on a postcard, but stamps are expensive, so you can submit your story through our digital upload submission form.


The results are in!

Entries were judged by Ken Rivard, author of CanalWatch

First: Plausible Deniability by Paul Kendrick  

Second: Return Flight by Angela Zimmerling 

Third: The Wait of Words by Priscilla Dunning 

 Cash prizes were $300, $200, & $100

Winning entries will be published in

Counterflow Magazine
