WMRA announces fiction winners

NPR’s Scott Simon found a comfortable couch and read a stack of short, short fiction submitted by WMRA listeners.

The winners he chose are now available for listening and reading at www.wmra.org.

The stories had to fit a five-minute window to air in WMRA’s twice-weekly interview program, “Virginia Insight.”

Fourth place went to Ming Ivory for “Music Lessons;” third place to Jack Greer for “Sunday at Walmart;” second place to Derek Kannemeyer for “9th Grade Diversity Workshop Report by Casey, Martha P,. Martha V., & Josephine;” and first place to Jason Barr for “Crows.”
