STORY OF THE MONTH: August 2018

The Story of the Month is chosen from the Story of the Week winners announced from the past month.

The finalists for August were:

Bike Ride by Harry Demarest
Utah by Peter Vickland
Pizza Night by Maura Yzmore
The Recollection Collection by Mark Farley

The winner of the August 2018 Story of the Month, and the $10 prize, is…

Pizza Night

Simple, but hard-hitting, Maura’s story makes good use of the classic technique of understating the build-up in order to emphasize the emotional payoff once it arrives.
