Sudden Denouement Collective


In November of 2018, the Sudden Denouement Literary Collective announced its first Short Story Contest centered around the theme ‘Things Would Never Be The Same.’  We received 129 submissions from around the globe with incredibly diverse interpretations of the theme.

We took these submissions very seriously, going through not one, not two, but three rounds of judging that included publishing our 11 finalists on Sudden Denouement.  We thank everyone who read, liked, commented, shared, and voted on these fine pieces of writing.

We are pleased to announce our winners!

Basilike Pappa – No More Than You Can Salt

2nd place: Wes Trexler – All Caps, No Spaces

3rd place: Stephanie Clark – The Chasm &

  2. Basilike, once again – I’m so very proud of you and congratulations!

    I wrote you this comment on the link from “No More Than You Can Salt”.

    “Basilike, a very masterful story of sting and beautiful imagery.

    You’ve done it again. 🙂 I love this very much and with my heart. “
