Congratulations to four Carve contributors whose stories have been recognized as a “Notable Story” of 2012 by the Million Writers Award. The MWA recognizes fiction published online and accepts hundreds of nominations each year. This year 50 stories were recognized as notable stories.
The Million Writers Award has been recognizing online fiction since 2004.Carve’s notable contributors and stories:
- Rachel Steiger-Meister, “Chlorine Mermaid”
- Adrienne Celt, “The Eternal Youth of Everyone Else”
- Eric Freeze, “Lone Wolf”
- Man Martin, “Literature Appreciation”
Each year since 2007 Carve has had at least one story recognized as a “Notable Story,” and we’re so pleased our contributors continued the tradition for 2012.
The list of notables will be narrowed by judges to a top ten that is voted on by the public. The winner is awarded a stipend (topping $1000 this year!) and the distinguished honor of being the top online story of 2012.
We’ll keep you updated on the award should any of the stories progress to the top ten round. In the meantime, support online magazines by reading the notable stories of 2012.
