I've been sitting on these
submissions for some time now. Back in early February of this year thedetroiter.com
held a sudden fiction contest during an Elitist Publications book signing. The
rules were simple, write 250 words or less by the end of the signing, the piece
could be any genre. The only problem we ran into with the contest is that none
of the writers put a title on there submissions, so we made them up on our own.
Here are the finalists, you will find we did not edit these pieces, they are exactly
how they were presented to us.
