2016 NANO Prize Results!

We would like to congratulate Charles Rafferty whose piece, “Medusa” has been selected by Kellie Wells as this year’s contest winner!

Kellie writes, “’Medusa’ examines a life, a complicated fate, offers strategies for navigating myth and ideology, and then, like a sonnet, there’s a turn at the end, a moment when the speaker casts her consequential gaze upon the reader, and it accomplishes all of this with shrewd economy. ”

Charles’ work will appear in  NANO Fiction’s tenth anniversary issue, due out October 2016.

The editors of NANO Fiction would like to thank everyone who contributed to this year’s contest. We are also grateful to Kellie Wells, who did a beautiful job considering submissions. She had a lot of great work to choose from, and we appreciate everyone who contributed to the prize.

Thank you all!
