Secrets and Memories: An Unremembered Flash-Fiction Contest

Unremembered by Jessica BrodyWhen Freedom Airlines Flight 121 crashes into the Pacific Ocean, rescuers are surprised to discover a sixteen-year-old girl floating, unharmed, among the wreckage. The girl—named Violet by the hospital staff who care for her—can’t remember anything. She isn’t on any of the flight records and her DNA and fingerprints don’t turn up in any database. As the Violet tries to piece together her life, all she discovers are secrets and more unanswered questions.

  1. I published my entry awhile ago, but I didn’t get a notification, and it’s not uploaded on here either. Did I do something wrong?

    • As long as your entry is tagged correctly, was created after the announcement of the contest, and is tagged correctly, you’re set!

    • Hey! As long as your entry is tagged correctly, was created after the announcement of the contest, and is published (not saved as a draft), you’re entered!

  2. Quick question. Under the official rules, Article six ,”Winner Selection” states that the judging will not be completed until March 20th, 2014. Was this simply a typographical error or will the contest really not be judged until March of next year?
