STORY OF THE MONTH: February 2020

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

The finalists for February were:

Next Day’s Receipt by Andrew C. Nosti
Your Pills by Jennifer L. Freed
Palindrome II by Pontius Paiva
Shelf-mates by Amanda Quinn
How Long Do You Wait? by Ursula Hoult

The winner of the February 2020 Story of the Month, and the $10 prize, is…

Your Pills

It’s been a while since we received new work from Jennifer, and she delivered a characteristically powerful, evocative, poetic piece.

Next Day’s Receipt and How Long Do You Wait? were both also excellent stories, easily capable of winning, but Jennifer managed to outdo them with her use of language and the message she delivered.
