hannah ambrosePrime Number is a quarterly online publication of "distinctive poetry and short fiction that takes readers to new places, introducing them to interesting characters, situations, and observations." A publication of Press 53, the editors enjoy engaging writers in two monthly contests: the Prime Number Magazine Flash Fiction Contest, which is a low-cost ($7 - a prime number) reading fee with a prime number first prize of $251, and the 53-Word Story Contest, which is free (is 0 a prime number?) and comes with a prompt.

Both winners are published in future issues of the publication.

Winners currently featured are Flash Fiction “Interrogation” by Michael Chin and 53-Word Story "Dance on my Grave" by Hannah Ambrose [pictured].
