American Fiction Prize Finalist

HTTP://WILLIAMBURLESON.COM

Yay! My short story, “Fox,” is a finalist for the American Fiction Prize from New Rivers Press! I’m very excited! It’s one of 20 (out of over 500 submissions), and next, the contest judge, Ann Hood, will pick the winner. Cross your fingers for me!

Weirdly, I was a finalist two years ago in this same contest for my story “Chasing Fire,” which appeared in American Fiction 14. “Fox” will appear in the fall 2017 American Fiction, and will be at least my 16th short published to date (but who’s counting).
