The 2015 Ernest Hemingway Flash Fiction Prize #seanocarolan.com #writing #contest #competition

The 2015 Ernest Hemingway Flash Fiction Prize

Though many writers have helped to shape the history of flash fiction, Ernest Hemingway’s first short-story collection, In Our Time, easily makes him one of the form’s primary pioneers. For this reason, Fiction Southeasthas chosen to honor his accomplishments through the Ernest Hemingway Flash Fiction Prize. Each year, a participating judge will select a winner (and three runners-up).

This year’s judge is author Daren Dean. Dean’s fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and interviews have appeared in The Green Hills Literary Lantern, Missouri Life, The Oklahoma Review, Midwestern Gothic, Ecotone, Image, Chattahoochee Review, Fiction Southeast, Story South, Aries, and others. His story “Bring Your Sorrow Over Here” was selected as Runner-up by Judge George Singleton in Yemassee’s William Richey Short Fiction contest and another story, “Affliction” was a Finalist in the Glimmer Train Short Fiction Contest for New Writers in 2012. He holds an MFA in Creative Writing from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington. Dean also worked for several years at the University of Missouri Press. He is the founding editor of Cedars (Cedarsmag.com). Currently, he teaches writing and literature in the English department at Louisiana State University where he serves as the Instructor Coordinator of the Readers & Writers Reading Series. He resides in the greater Baton Rouge area with his wife and their two children.
