We're excited to announce the shortlist from our 2018 Short Forms Contest! Here are the six shortlisted short forms pieces, as selected by our esteemed judge Hiromi Goto.
The long-listed short forms entries are finally here! Due to the changes to our contest calendar last fall, we held two short forms contests in 2018. We will be announcing the shortlisted pieces as chosen by our esteemed judge, Hiromi Goto, next week.
When Room decided to launch a Short Forms Contest a few years ago, we wanted to create an avenue for writers who write flash fiction, non-fiction, and/or prose poems—and perhaps writers who experiment with blending and bending genres—to submit their work. (Contest entrants are not required to clarify which genre they are writing in.) The contest itself was kind of an experiment, but two contests and more than 450 submissions later, we are now running the third contest (deadline: November 1, 2018).
