The editors of Expo are pleased to announce the winners of our final contest of the year, judged by author Glen David Gold! The winning short form works evoked elegance in mysteries both solved and unsolved, leaving us intrigued, enchanted, and impressed.
Read on to discover these works for yourself:
“My first novel is 170,000 words and my second 240,000. For my memoir I wanted to write something shorter, so it’s…175,000 words. Once, a Famous Novelist said to me, “There’s a short story contest I think you should enter,” and I said, “really?” and she said, “No, everyone knows you can’t clear your throat in 5,000 words.”
– Glen David Gold
