The public vote for this year's Million Writers Award has ended and the winners are:
- First place (winner of $500): "The Fisherman's Wife" by Jenny Williams (LitNImage)
- Runner-up (winner of $200): "Fuckbuddy" by Roderic Crooks (Eyeshot)
- Honorable mention (winner of $100): "No Bullets in the House" by Geronimo Madrid (Drunken Boat)
Congratulations to all the winners--I'll contact them shortly on how to receive their prize money. Also, thanks to everyone who took part in this year's award, especially the donors, without whom there would have been no prize money.
I'd also like to draw attention to Erica Naone and her wonderful blog. During the course of the MWA public vote, Erica reviewed the top ten stories on her blog. So if you haven't read the finalists, pop over there to see what Erica thought of them.
