I rarely write short fiction, but I felt compelled to write a short story based on a book idea I’ve been considering. So I wrote the story–“The Untold Story of the Murder of Isis”–and submitted it to the Ink of Ages Fiction Contest, hosted by World History Encyclopedia and sponsored by the Oxford University Press.
To my delight, the story made the shortlist!
Final winners will be announced January 24. Based on the opening lines of the other stories, I’m in good company. I am beyond honored to have had the story selected!
Thank you World History Encyclopedia! If you haven’t checked out their offerings, get to it. It is a GREAT research tool for writers and history buffs alike.
