Winning Story a Matter of Life and Death, Truth and Lies

Jan 11, 2013

The meaning of life. That was the weighty theme of this year’s 12th annual Creative Loafing Fiction Contest, whose winning stories appear in this week’s issue. Last night at the Highland Inn Ballroom, the winners read their short stories aloud.

Here's Abigail Greenbaum reading from her first-place entry, “In Case of Emergency, Good Luck.” The audio begins with a conversation about the story and what made it this year’s winner, with WABE’s Kate Sweeney and Creative Loafing culture editor, Wyatt Williams. 

This is an extended version of the radio interview that aired on City Cafe on Friday, January 11th. WABE's Myke Johns loaned production assistance on this story.
