Hint Fiction Contest Winners Announced
“Any Other Word,” Penn State York’s online literary magazine, has announced the winners of the hint fiction contest. Winners are Joseph Cabrera, York, Pa., “08779321-USW;” Mary Lee, East Berlin, Pa., “Parenting Styles;” and Ben Morgan, Hanover, Pa., “Frying Pan Fire-Jumping". “Winners were awarded copies of the “Hint Fiction” anthology as well as a new Moleskine notebook.
Author and editor Robert Swartwood coined the term “hint fiction” in 2009 and defined it as a story of 25 words or fewer that suggests a larger, more complex story.
The contest, sponsored by “Any Other Word,” was open to Penn State York students and entries were read without the author’s information appearing on the story. The winning stories will be published in the upcoming (fifth issue) issue of “Any Other Word.”
