Fourth Quarter 2012 Award: Vivienne Merrill
Vivienne Merrill is the winner of Flash Frontier’s fourth quarterly award. Her stories include a variety of approaches to flash fiction, and range in topic — from domestic disharmony to mythical mysteries. We’ve been continuously impressed by her submissions, and her willingness to approach the themes with creativity and warmth. We were glad to see her stories time and again in 2012.
Congratulations to Vivienne Merrill, fourth quarter award winner.
