Finally, the moment has arrived: we will now announce the Editors’ Choice winners for the IU Flash Fiction challenges from December 2016. Yeah, sure, we’re a little late with this. But, better late than never, right? Right.
As you know, each week, the public gets to choose the Readers’ Choice winning entry by popular vote and the author is rewarded with a special feature on Saturdays. In the case of the Editors’ Choice winners, they garner a coveted spot in the first ever Indies Unlimited Flash Fiction Editors’ Choice Anthology. You don’t remember any of this? Well, you can refresh your memory by reading our rules.) Without further ado, here are the winning authors:
Congratulations to the following authors whose stories will be published in the anthology:

Yes, you’re right, there are some weeks missing. No winners were chosen for those weeks. The editors want really top-notch stuff for the anthologies, so don’t forget to proofread and polish your entry, and make sure it is an actual story and not just a scene that is a continuation of the prompt. Lynne Cantwell wrote some tips on how to write good flash fiction here.
Again, congratulations to the authors above. Give us your best stuff, people – we want to see your names up there next time.
