Every year the judges for the storySouth Million Writers Award pull together their list of notable online stories. And unfortunately, ever year there are a few stories the judges pick which must be bounced from that list. These are stories the judges liked but which, due to not meeting the award's eligibility requirements, couldn't be considered.
This year our judges picked three stories which were not eligible for the award – two of them were originally published in print magazines or their associated websites, while the remain story was published this year. Since the judges liked the stories enough to pick them, I wanted to bring them to everyone's attention. They are:
- "Bats" by John Kinsella" from Agni
Please note two judges picked this story.
- "Teratology" by Kyle Winkler from Conjunctions
- "The Fawn Skull" by Katy Resch from Pank Magazine.
