Rose Metal Press is thrilled to announce that HOW SOME PEOPLE LIKE THEIR EGGS by Sean Lovelace…

…has just been selected by Sherrie Flick as the winner of our Third Annual Short Short Chapbook contest! We will be publishing Sean’s manuscript as a limited edition chapbook this coming summer. In the meantime, you can read more about him at his blog here, and also here.

We would also like to recognize the following contest finalists:

Aaron Burch for Birthmarks
Stefanie Freele for Breathing Oysters
Molly Gaudry for Come See the Monkey & Other Stories
Jac Jemc for This Stranger She'd Invited In
Erika Mikkalo for 26 Letters

And semi-finalists:

Lisa Buchanan for Artifacts from the American Century
Dawn Corrigan for Under the Power Lines
Roseanne Griffeth for Getting There Eventually
Tiff Holland for Straight Out of the Can
Kate McCorkle for The Last Parakeet and Other Stories

We had received more entries this year than ever before, and we are extremely grateful to everyone who submitted. Thank you, as always, for letting us read your manuscripts, and for reminding us how much amazing short short prose is being written out there.
