Description

The Little Bird Writing Contest is an international contest exclusively for innovative, emerging short fiction writers. The contest opens each spring when the birds come back and showcases the excellent stories that come from Sarah Selecky Writing School.
The 2018 Little Bird contest winners responded to the writing prompt: Start your story with a balloon that has an unusual message. Use the words “lemon” and “ecstasy” somewhere in the story. End the story with an electrical storm. Volume 8 features winning stories chosen by Scotiabank Giller Prize finalist Michelle Winters BR>“Sorry I was such a Dick” by Esther Griffin BR>“Things Float Away” by Tracey McGillivray BR>“To Weather a Storm” by Shoshana Gertler
Proceeds from anthology sales go towards the Peelee Island Bird Observatory and the Prince Edward Point Bird Observatory to help protect the real little birds out there.

About the Authors

Michelle Winters is a writer, painter, and translator from Saint John, N.B., living in Toronto. Her written and visual work stretches the limits of the probable, explores the lushness of the industrial, and anthropomorphizes with gay abandon. Her debut novel, I Am a Truck, was a finalist for the Scotiabank Giller Prize.
