Our judges were blown away by the quality of the writing in this year’s submissions, and the decision was a brutal task! A shout-out to all the writers at Austin Bat Cave who volunteered to judge our final round. 

Each of our three winners will be recognized on the main stage at #TTBF 2019 and receive a prize of $150 and an editorial review of their work by author and editor Leila Sales and TTBF programming director Meghan Goel.

All writers who submitted to our Fresh Ink Fiction Contest will be invited to participate in a special writing workshop hosted by Austin Bat Cave.

We love reading your writing! Keep picking up your pens, writers. We need your stories!
