Congratulations to Jane Dalton – winner of this month’s competition – for her flash fiction (55 words max.) on the End of Winter. Here’s her winning entry:

Shame and worry nagged at her through the winter. Their argument had been tempestuous; she had stormed outside and unleashed her anger on the lawn, stabbing at the ground, tossing in bulbs for therapy. Finally she drank herself into guilty oblivion. Snows melted and days warmed, and crocuses poked through, spelling out, “I love you”.

Thanks to all the other entrants, we’ll be running another flash fiction competition next month.
