The winner is Berrian Eno Van Fleet for the offbeat and humorous “how we met” story titled, “How it Happened.” You can read the story on Finn McCool’s website:
I didn’t win First Prize, but I did win something! (Don’t know what yet, I had to work on St. Patrick’s Day!) My story is titled,“The Extra Part,” and is a bit of a satire on the film industry in New Orleans—-since so many of my friends are working in the less-than-glamorous film jobs.
Update: My short stroy, “The Extra Part” received an honorable mention. I won a Finn McCool’s cap & T-shirt!
Look for the story to be included in the 2014 Finn McCool’s Short Story Collection.
I may also post my stories here on Capitare a Fagiolo.
