Five stories from our second annual flash fiction contest

Joe Rushmore

We at The Tulsa Voice were thrilled to partner with our friends at Nimrod International Journal for our second annual flash fiction contest. We pored through anonymous submissions from Tulsa-area and Tulsa-connected writers, and paired selected entries with different local photographers who were tasked with capturing the spirit of the chosen stories. These are our winners and finalists.
