(b)OINK’s Flash Fiction Contest: The Top 20 Finalists

We received an amazing amount of submissions. Below, we have pared down the list to 20 finalists. In order to maintain mystery, we’ve omitted the names of the authors. However, all the pieces are organized alphabetically by last names, so have fun guessing. Thanks again to everyone that submitted!

Well, this is a rather embarrassing question. My phone is basically always in my hand, or nearby. Between running a business, running a fair bit of the (b)OINK social media (yes, that’s me! If you hate it, keep it to yourself), and being involved with a few other endeavors that require me to be in touch basically always. My phone is always buzzing,...

(b)OINK the Intern…Harder.

Round two of (b)OINK the Intern is here. We had to convince him to come out of the corner after quite a bit of reassurance that everything was going to be ok. Queries What’s the best way to repurpose a pair of love cuffs gathering dust? Well, there are a few options. The one that came to mind right away was “BECOME A POLICE PERSON.” I mean, how ridiculous would it be to get arrested with a pair of handcuffs that are probably slightly crusty and also neon pink (or green, or whatever—I don’t feel like they’re ever NOT neon).
