Dear Writers,

Many thanks for submitting your work to the Wag’s Revue Inaugural Contest in Fiction. We were overwhelmed by the quantity and quality of submissions. Deciding the winner was extremely difficult, but here are the results:

Winner: “The Recital” by Lauren Lovett.
Runner-up: “Mourning Jimmy Crooks” by Robert Meixner.

Thanks again for your contributions. Issue 2, which will include the above stories, will be online in the next day or two. Be sure to drop by and give it a read. Also, submissions will soon be open in all genres. Please do consider submitting again.

All the best,

Will Litton
Fiction Editor, Wag’s Revue
