“The Windsor Snake” Gains a Mention…


October 11, 2016 by Ray Yanek


Warning: Shameless self-promotion forthcoming, but I am thrilled to announce that NPR affiliate WNIJ in DeKalb Illinois awarded my flash fiction story “The Windsor Snake” an Honorable Mention in the station’s flash fiction contest!

The prompt was simply to start with “an outrageous, inexplicable situation” in the opening sentence.

Here’s a link to me reading “The Windsor Snake” at the WNIJ studio:  

After watching it, I think it’s safe to say that I have absolutely no future in television or radio. . . 🙂

Here is also a link to the story that was awarded top prize in the contest.  It’s a good one.  You can also find the other top three finishers at the bottom.
