The third place winner for the 2019 QSF Flash Fiction contest is:
The Woman With No Name, by Siri Paulson
This marks the first time someone has placed in the contest twice. Siri also took the #3 spot in 2017’s Renewal with her story “Urban Renewal.”
Seabirds cried and wheeled over the fishing currachsrocking at anchor as the sea-breeze blew over the breakwater and into the village harbour.Brighid sat on the dock leaning against the woman with no name, not caring who saw them touch now. They’d had their last kiss that morning. It had tasted like the sea.
The judges’ comments:
Our final winner is a really sweet, touching story, and another first for us—never before has one author taken a top-three story spot in our contest twice. The Woman With No Name is well-written and packed with of emotion—it really moved the judges: “Just because someone wants to go away doesn’t mean they don’t miss what they’re leaving behind,” and we didn’t want to leave this story behind, either. Congrats!
