Editor’s Choice Award: Issue 5


The ECA was selected from a list of ten finalists, which in turn were chosen from 96 works that appear in MacQ-5 (not including the five “qualmish” stories from our latest writing challenge, the “RESQ”).

A world of thanks, and a small cash prize of $100 USD, to Scott Ferry for this phenomenal poem:

Bubbles the fish no longer swims
