NANO Fiction 8.2 features this year’s winner of the 2014 NANO Prize selected by Kim Chinquee.
Jasmine Sawers piece “The Weight of the Moon” was chosen, as Chinquee notes, beecause “This piece represents, to me, what it means to be in love. So in love that one wants to capture the being one’s in love with and keep it to one’s self. Not realizing, at first, that this may produce harm. Ultimately this piece renders, to me, one’s growth, the grief in letting go, and what a love that is in itself.”
This is an annual contest which awards $1,000 for a previously unpublished work of fiction 300 words or fewer. This year’s contest will be judged by Amber Sparks. All entrants will receive a one-year subscription to NANO Fiction. Deadline: September 1, 2015. See full guidelines here.
